Unsung Hero Award

Thank you for attending Unsung Hero Award 2017!


Thank you for joining us in Manchester for the 2017 Unsung Hero Award!

The 2017 Unsung Hero Award was a MASSIVE success! Approximately 100 attendees came to the Place Aparthotel on a Friday afternoon and praised the NHS Unsung Heroes together with our team and our very special guest speakers.

The NHS commentator Roy Lilley, twice voted the UK’s top NHS speaker and one of the most influential people in healthcare, discussed his opinion on why the start of the NHS was the most heroic decision of our politicians.

Enid Dunn, the winner of the 2016 Unsung Hero Award, shared with the audience her story why she has been nominated and what difference winning the award has made to her life.

Congratulations to our winners who has received our special prizes as recognition of their compassion and a hard work and thank you all for participating in the Unsung Hero Award that we carried out. Let’s look at the feedback from our attendees!

We were pleased to see that 80.6% of our participants marked the highest score (10 out of 10) regarding the overall message of the Unsung Hero Award, which on average scored 9.8 out of 10! This means that you absolutely loved our idea of supporting NHS and healthcare non-medical staff and totally back up our desire to bring more recognition to them.

You seem to like the fact that you are receiving appreciation from our non-medical community as you’ve voted 9.3 out of 10 on average answering the question if the event has met your expectations.
