Make this year your year at the

Allocate Awards

The Allocate Awards are back for 2021 and we’re calling out to all users of Allocate Software solutions across the NHS and wider health and social care sector to share your successes.

We want to hear how you, as a modern healthcare organisation, are developing your workforce for the future of healthcare – whether that’s implementing innovative ways of working, introducing new approaches or adopting technology, our panel of independent judges is waiting to hear from you.

The prestigious Allocate Awards ceremony celebrates and rewards those who have made a material and positive difference to the people in their organisation, their patients, service users and to the operational sustainability of the organisations themselves.

If you have seen exceptional work, dedication and achievement in the past year, from your team, a colleague or even yourself then cast your nominations now.
