UK: Meet Nigerian Healthcare Professionals Nominated For NHS @70 Excellence Awards

By Published March 11, 2019

The list of Nigerian NHS professionals who made the final cut for the excellence awards organised by NHCPUK to celebrate the NHS at 70 is now out.

It has been a challenge selecting the most outstanding Nigerian Healthcare Professionals in the UK from a list of over 200 shortlisted to recognise and celebrate the contributions of these group of Nigerians, as the National Health Scheme (NHS) celebrates its 70th anniversary.

With a population of 5,405 healthcare professionals, Nigeria occupy the 9th position out of 157 different nationalities in the NHS. Until now, their contributions have never been publicly celebrated, thanks to this initiative by the NHCPUK.

Speaking on the excellence award, the Project Co-ordinator of NHCPUK, Lope Olayiwola said “All is now set for the most anticipated, first ever awards in recognition of the contributions of Nigerian healthcare professionals in the NHS. We look forward to Nigerians and friends of Nigeria to come out in large numbers to support this laudable initiative. We are optimistic that guests will have an unforgettable evening of quality entertainments, awards ceremony/special recognitions, three course dinner, dance, comedy and lots of fun.”

The Co-ordinator further said that, a great take away for attendees and all nominees will be a keep-sake souvenir event brochure containing the profiles of Influential Nigerian Healthcare professionals in the UK which is expected to inspire the next generation of Nigerians. It is not too late for prospective advertisers to promote their products and services. Few exhibition stands are still available for grabs by product vendors.

Distinguished guest of honour whose attendance has been confirmed includes Nigeria’s Honourable Minister of Health, Professor I F Adewole, Yvonne Coghill CBE, OBE, Director of the NHS Quality and Diversity Council of the National Health Service (NHS) and senior officials of the ministry of health.

Winners will be announced during a ceremony scheduled for Saturday 23rd March 2019 at the Grange City Hotel, 8 -14 Cooper Row, London. EC3N 2BQ. Time: 5.00pm to 1.00am.

The NHCPUK awards ceremony is sponsored by The Leys Pharmacy and is supported by Nigerian Nurses Charitable Association UK, Nigeria Radiographers Association UK, African Voice Newspaper UK, Black Heritage Radio UK, DJAMedia, FAME TV amongst others.

Tickets are available at £75.00 per head & £140.00 per couple. Attendees can purchase tickets by payment transfer into NATWEST Bank, Sort code 558111 Account 85205060, using their names as reference.
