Each entry will be reviewed by a multi-disciplinary panel of eminent diabetes professionals, nurses, patient representatives, clinicians, charities, CCG groups and leading industry professionals.
There are 5 different entry categories for children, young people and emerging adults and adults. There are also an additional 5 entry categories open to all, with 3 nomination categories.
The initiatives must be well thought through with clear method, objectives, results, sustainability and conclusions that are specifically related to the aim of the initiative. Projects should have a demonstrable impact on clinical practice, showing how innovation can contribute to the optimisation of service delivery, ultimately benefiting people with diabetes.
Judges will favour projects that demonstrate results having quality and/or efficiency benefits which could be replicated elsewhere, thereby having a greater impact than their initial focus.
Embrace this opportunity to be recognised and rewarded for your best practice initiatives and hard work and have the opportunity to share your work with eminent diabetes professionals and representatives from diabetes patient groups, the NHS and industry.
Once the entry deadline has passed, all initiatives will be reviewed by the judging panel.
Shortlisted entries will be announced after the judging day in July and finalists will be invited to attend the Awards presentation at Sanofi's headquarters in Guildford where the winners will be announced.
