The Excellence in Primary Care Award
The Future NHS Award
The Health Equalities Award (New)

Ben commented, "All NHS staff, volunteers and carers do such a wonderful job for the people of Milton Keynes.
"The impressive way our local NHS stepped up to the challenge of hosting a Coronavirus quarantine centre has underlined how fantastic our healthcare professionals in MK really are.
“We can show our appreciation for all their hard work so if you know anybody or a team worthy of a nomination please do get in touch by emailing me using email@example.com.”
