This award recognises diabetes healthcare professionals based in the UK or Ireland who have succeeded in raising standards of care over and above their day to day role.
The nominee's information will be posted online for the public vote within a specific time frame. The top five nominations from the public vote will then be reviewed by an independent judging panel made up of senior judges and chairs who will make the final decision on who receives the award.
The judges will be looking for evidence of changes in practice in 2016, initiated and led by the nominee, demonstrating positive outcomes in care and clear benefits for diabetes service users and/or their families and carers.
