Without its exceptional staff, the NHS would not be known as the envy of the world.

From the ambulance dispatchers who respond in times of emergency, to the speech and language therapists who provide life-changing treatment, the NHS would not be where it is today without the millions of people who keep it running day in, day out. And the millions more who have kept it going over the last 70 years.

That’s why, as the health service approaches its 70th anniversary, we want to celebrate the standout stars of the last seven decades – the staff within health and care who have gone the extra mile for patients, services and local communities.

So if you know someone who goes over and above – whether an activities coordinator or A&E doctor, care home nurse or cancer specialist, paediatrician or public health specialist – nominate them as one of Health and Care’s Top 70 Stars.

Anyone who has worked for NHS and wider health and care sector over the past 70 years can be nominated, whether still living or since passed.

Voting is open until 29 May.

Be part of NHS history and celebrate health and care’s standout stars.

I would like to nominate Julie Fuller and Will Cartwright jointly for this special Health and Care Award. I think it is highly poignant that their nomination is made, to coincide with the 70 th Anniversary of the NHS. Times are changing for mental health services, power and empowerment is shifting and at long last the true value of lived expertise in developing, designing and delivering services is being heralded. Although Julie and Will have been employed in their Peer Support Worker roles...
