How to Enter

The entry process is simple, so entering should not take up much time.


PMGroup will keep all information provided confidential and all judges will sign a confidentiality agreement prior to appointment. Entrants may mark certain sensitive parts of their entry 'not for publication', provided such restrictions are not used unreasonably.

Entries are invited from anyone working in the diabetes arena throughout the UK and Ireland. Whatever the area of patient care, if your initiative or programme relates to diabetes in any way, you should enter it. Judges are keen to review a wide spectrum of entries and recognise the innovative practice that we know is out there.

We welcome initiatives and programmes that were launched between January 2012 and December 2017.

Take a look at the categories to decide which one is most appropriate for your entry. Please note that an initiative can be entered in one category only. However an entrant can submit multiple initiatives into the appropriate categories.

Entries for certain categories are decided by nomination. Submit your choice for who should win the Diabetes Healthcare Professional of the Year, People's Award or Outstanding Educator in Diabetes.

Why should I enter?

Please attach and clearly mark any previous QiC Diabetes entries relating to the same initiative. Include the category it was entered into, placing (if applicable) and the feedback you received. Your entry will need to demonstrate that you have addressed the judges’ comments or how the initiative has progressed, so make sure your entry form reflects this.

If you are proud of the good work you are doing, help others by sharing your success and gain nationwide recognition for what you do.
