The CPHVA is immensely proud of the professionalism, passion and creativity that community practitioners and health visitors demonstrate daily, across a diverse landscape of practice environments.This work continues to be undertaken in extremely difficult times, often with little or no recognition or appreciation. Launched in 2011 to counter the lack of appreciation for the professional achievements of members, the CPHVA Awards acknowledge the extraordinary work that members carry out every day with huge dedication and enthusiasm.
The CPHVA Awards will take place in London on 28th March 2014 at a lunchtime ceremony. This is your opportunity to recognise the achievements of the profession at your own national awards.The ceremony will begin with a reception to which those shortlisted for each award will be invited, to meet informally with their peers, key partners and invited guests. After lunch, the presentation of the awards will form the highlight of a wonderful day.
Now, the moment has come for you to nominate or be nominated for the awards – your awards – to celebrate you, your colleagues, your teams and the positive work you accomplish.
First, study the categories and list anyone you believe should be nominated for their outstanding professional contribution. Your nominees must be members of CPHVA.
