Nominate your 2017 diabetes hero! This is a special award, supported by Diabetes UK, which recognises someone very special who has supported/cared for people with diabetes in 2016.
This award will be presented to someone who is based in the UK or Ireland and is not a healthcare professional. Instead it will go to an individual such as a carer, volunteer, a person with diabetes, diabetes blogger and/or writer, family member – anyone that you think deserves this recognition. You may not nominate yourself. Read about 2016 Winners
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 nominations of outstanding individuals whose care and support stands out from their peers and has made a real difference to people with diabetes.
