EMBRACE New Year Honours Awards

Embrace Awards UK

The 2015 EMBRACE New Year Honours Awards at Islington Assembly Hall London

Last year the Health & Social Care BME Network launched EMBRACE, a dynamic new initiative aimed at recognising the contribution that Black & Minority Ethnic nurses doctors, clinicians and administrators make to the NHS. Moreover the Awards seek to promote and reward the values that ensure the NHS becomes a national leader in creating workplaces at ease with all aspects of diversity.

The Network has decided to build on the success of the last EMBRACE Awards by linking next year’s Awards to the timing of the honours system. EMBRACE New Year Honours Awards is our way of saying well done and thank you to the diverse unsung heroes of the health service.

About Us
The Network was launched 4 years ago at the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with the aspiration of providing quality support to BME healthcare professional and a national voice on race equality for the sector. Over its short life the Network has built strong alliances with the CQC, NHS England, Manager’s in Partnership (MIP) and many NHS Trusts.
