KMPT Awards 2018

We are delighted to bring you the KMPT Awards 2018!

Being held in the 70th birthday for the NHS, we have added a category for 2018 only! This year you have the opportunity to nominate someone for the Healthcare Hero Award and because it's for one year only, the winner of this award will be recognised as a truly remarkable member of the KMPT team.

The Healthcare Hero Award celebrates anyone who has given their all within their role and across barriers, working with partners to help improve services while all the time ensuring patients are at the heart of everything they do. Anyone who is involved in mental health care can be nominated - patient, carer, trust staff or volunteer. Those nominated have to evidence an outstanding contribution to mental health in Kent and Medway.

We have also added a further two categories specifically to recognise the important contribution of those with lived experience. The Patient and Carer Contribution Awards recognises trust patients or carers who have contributed to helping improve trust services for others. Raising awareness of mental ill health and challenging stigma by using lived experience is shown to be the best way to share these important messages. The winner of these awards will have shown considerable commitment and helped to make changes within their community by sharing their own experiences – all the time breaking down barriers.

Of course we still have another 12 categories for you to choose from, so we're sure you will find a category to fit someone who deserves some recognition.

The deadline for nominations is 18 May 2018. Please read the entry criteria before submitting your nomination. To give your entry the greatest chance, your nomination must meet the guidance for the category which are you entering. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact

We cannot wait to celebrate with you on 21 June 2018 at the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel. With a fabulous 70th birthday theme, we hope you will join us to celebrate everything the trust has achieved. Everyone is welcome, even if you haven't been nominated, we urge you to celebrate with us.
