RCN London we are thrilled to announce that we are launching our nominations for our Rising Star Awards for 2021! Our Rising Star Awards are part of our celebrations for Black History Month which will take place in October. BHM Logo 2021

Nominations are now open, and we’d love for you to nominate any nurses, midwives, and nursing support workers from the Black, Asian and minority ethnic community (BAME) who you feel have made an outstanding contribution in the capital over the past year. We welcome nominations from within and outside the NHS, and nominee’s must be RCN members.

Our theme for this year is ‘anti-racism a time for literacy and transformation’ and this is reflected in our award categories which are detailed in the nomination form. 

You can nominate an RCN London member who:
• works in London
• is from a Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) background or works with BAME communities
• works in a nursing role across bands 2-7, or role equivalent
• is key to the future of nursing (locally and/or nationally)
• can be employed inside or outside the NHS including through an agency
• has not previously been the recipient of a Rising Star award.

Submit your nominations by midnight on Sunday 18 July.
