Health and Wellbeing Board awards

Entries for the 2019/20 Health and Wellbeing Board Awards have now closed. 

“Our ambition is to enable a system that not only detects and treats illnesses, but one that also prevents poor health by tackling the root causes of ill health and puts people back in charge of their own health. The awards provide an exciting opportunity to highlight the excellent work going on to drive forward this approach in Norfolk and Waveney."
HWB chairman Bill Borrett

The awards will honour individuals and organisations delivering the ambitions of the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The winners will be announced at the HWB annual conference on 25 March.

Entries for the awards opened on December 16 2019

The closing date was 9am, Friday 28 February 2020.

Winners will be announced and awards presented at the Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) Annual Conference on 25 March 2020.

The awards are a great opportunity to highlight and take pride in the excellent work being delivered to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Norfolk and Waveney.

They are a chance to:

  • Highlight and showcase your achievements to your local peers and nationally
  • Motivate your workforce by giving them recognition of their achievements
  • Spread best practice – learn from others or help teach others through your innovation
  • Position yourself, your organisation or department as a frontrunner.

A HWB team will collate and review all entries after the closing date and shortlist them for judging.

The hero award will be chosen by a panel made up of members of the HWB. Those shortlisted for the Chairman’s Award will be asked to pitch their project at the HWB conference on 25 March.

All winners will be announced at the HWB Annual Conference.
