Every Voice Patient Achievement Awards

Every Voice Patient Achievement Awards logo

We are hosting our first ever Patient Achievement Awards to recognise and value the important contributions our patients make to improving our services and in their own recovery.

Organised by the Every Voice Patient Partners, this is an opportunity to recognise those patient led projects that are not only improving their own experiences, but also benefitting and improving the lives and experiences of peers.

There are six categories open to nominations and people can nominate between now and 28 June to be in with a chance of attending our black tie celebration event in October and be recognised for the amazing work taking place.

The awards are open to anyone accessing mental health, learning disability and autism services provided by LPFT, all we ask is that nominations are for projects and achievements co-produced and delivered by patients.

Below are the categories people can nominate for

Nominations close 28 June.

Thinking about submitting a nomination

Here are our top tips

  1. Keep it short and simple… we have lots of amazing nominations and we don’t want anyone missing out!
     
  2. In the full overview, make sure to give information on how your project is patient driven and how your project impacted your team.
     
  3. Include a good description. We want to hear all about your project and fully understand your vision.
     
  4. We want to follow along with the process of your project and celebrate the results with you, so include photos/videos/extra documents if you can.
     
  5. Make sure not to include any patient names on your forms. Use initials or reference patient/service user.
     
  6. How has your project impacted patients? Show us by including quotes/comments/pictures.
