NHS Safeguarding stars and CNO Award applications

As safeguarding challenges continue, we must not lose sight of the great work we do on a daily basis. There are awards that we should also be recognised with! Let us have your examples and let’s do this; your time to shine for school nursing!

NHS Safeguarding stars are available from the national safeguarding team by emailing Kenny.Gibson@nhs.net with 2 or 3 paragraphs about how an HV, SN or team safeguarded a baby, child, young person or family. 

CNO gold and silver awards might also be useful to get health visiting and school nursing into #teamCNO. I sit on the selection panel and I have attached the CNO award application which, as you can read, is more about 500 words by their provider chief nurse or system leader. Gold awards are for lifetime achievement; silver awards are for excellence in practice.
