Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards
Our awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution Macmillan professionals make to cancer services. The work of Macmillan professionals is vital in improving the lives of people affected by cancer, and we want them to know just how much they're valued.
Now entering their fifth year, the prestigious Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards recognise Macmillan professionals who, through their effort and leadership, have made a significant difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.
Nominations are open from 2 February to midnight 31 March 2016.
If you work with a professional in a Macmillan post, this is the perfect opportunity to reward their hard work and dedication. It’s also a great chance to generate some positive publicity for your organisation and demonstrate your impact.

Lifetime Achievement Award
This is our highest and most prestigious award. It recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to supporting Macmillan throughout their career.
The 2015 award was presented to Liz Henderson for her exceptional work to innovate cancer services in Northern Ireland, and to inspire countless colleagues across the UK and beyond.
Henry Garnett Awards
These awards are given in honour of Henry Garnett OBE, who was Macmillan’s Chief Executive for more than 10 years until 1986.
They recognise the contribution of professionals who have worked directly with Macmillan outside of their core professional role – for example by undertaking media work, fundraising, policy development or education.
Congratulations to all the winners, who were presented with their awards locally.
