Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards
Nominations for the 2015 Excellence Awards are now closed. The shortlist of the nominees will be announced here on 6 July.
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.
Who can be nominated
Anyone who has been a Macmillan professional for at least one year can be nominated as an individual or as part of a team, whatever their role or level. Nominations should demonstrate how they've gone beyond what is expected of them, showing the difference between exceptional service and what we expect from Macmillan professionals as standard practice.
Award categories and prizes
The award categories are:
Up to three awards will be given in each Excellence Award category. Each individual winner will receive £150 plus an award, and winning teams will be given £500 and a plaque.
We will select up to three Macmillan fellows from the individual award winners. Fellows will be able to access a grant of £10,000 and their expertise and leadership will influence wider Macmillan work.
Only one professional will be selected for the Lifetime Achievement Award, who will be presented with a trophy.
Award winners and representatives from the employing organisation will be invited to a high profile awards ceremony at the annual Macmillan Professionals Event on Thursday 12 November 2015. The awards will enable the winners to raise the profile of their work and celebrate it on a nationwide scale.
Lifetime Achievement Award
This is our highest and most prestigious award.
It recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to supporting Macmillan over a lifetime.
Nominations are made internally and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in November.
The pictured trophy was awarded to Charles Campion-Smith in 2014 for his development of the Macmillan GP community, work on primary care programmes, fundraising and overall passion for Macmillan.
Henry Garnett Awards

Macmillan recognises the exceptional contribution that inspirational professionals make beyond their core professional role. This could include work promoting and supporting Macmillan through the media, fundraising, policy development or educating across networks.
