The awards will recognise hospitals, primary care providers, community services, social care, public health, the voluntary sector and stakeholders.

Sir John Peace CVO, Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire said: “These awards recognise the potential impact of greater collaborative working.

“I hope they will raise the profile of the importance of working across organisational boundaries, in order to ensure the very best outcomes for communities.

“It is my hope these awards will act a stimulus and benchmark for organisations to relook at how they deliver care and with whom in future.”
