CARES Awards

Every year we have awards to recognise services or teams who've gone above and beyond to provide high quality care.

The CARES Awards are based on our values

  • Compassionate
  • Accountable
  • Responsive
  • Effective
  • Safe

We currently have nine divisional categories, with a winner for each going through to the final. An overall winner and a ‘highly commended’ runner-up is then announced at a dedicated award ceremony.
