CPHVA Awards 2012: open to Unite/CPHVA Members: CPHVA and Community Practitioner are proud to announce the inaugural CPHVA Awards, celebrating the achievements and vital hard work of community nursing practitioners across the UK, each and every day.
The CPHVA are immensely proud of the professionalism, passion and creativity that community practitioners and health visitors are undertaking throughout the diversity of environments in which they practice.
This practice is being undertaken in extremely difficult times, often without thanks or appreciation. With the support of our partners the CPHVA are proud to present for the first time their own series of awards to address this imbalance and to acknowledge the extraordinary work that their members perform every day.
We hope you will find the time to apply for the awards, your awards, to celebrate and raise the profile of you, your colleagues and the positive work you do.
We all know and admire practitioners and their practice. This is the opportunity to recognise this at your national awards, the CPHVA Awards.
The CPHVA Awards ceremony will take place in the stunning setting of Savoy Place, London on Tuesday 13th March, 2012
