The nominations in 2017 varied immensely, there were simple nominations from service users who just want to say thank you, nominations from service users and relatives who want to say what a positive effect their carers made on their lives, nominations based on single instances of outstanding care and nominations based on continued help over time. What characterised them all was their heartfelt belief that their nominee is amazing and deserves recognition. Our task has been to assess the care given and the difference it’s made to service users’ and often colleagues’ lives.
