Support specialist diabetes healthcare professionals by nominating them in the Quality in Care Diabetes awards
Published on 2 August 2021
Since 2011 the Quality in Care Diabetes awards have been recognising, rewarding and sharing initiatives that improve the quality of life for people living with diabetes.
The 11th Quality in Care Diabetes awards will recognise and celebrate the exceptional work undertaken by healthcare professionals during the unprecedented pressure of Covid-19.
Entries for inspirational healthcare professionals are invited from anyone working in the diabetes arena throughout the UK and Ireland.
Quality in Care Diabetes Awards organisers said: “Do you know an outstanding educator in the UK or Ireland? Do you work with an exceptional diabetes healthcare professional who deserves to be recognised? Are you aware of a diabetes hero (non-professional) who is incredibly special and has supported/cared for people with diabetes in 2020? If so, QiC Diabetes has the categories to give these outstanding individuals the opportunity to be recognised.”
The three categories include Outstanding Educator in Diabetes; Diabetes Professional of the Year - a special opportunity to recognise a diabetes healthcare professional who has succeeded in raising standards of care over and above their day-to-day role in response to the Covid-19 pandemic; and Who is your Diabetes Hero - a special award which recognises someone incredibly special who has supported/cared for people with diabetes in 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.”
DRWF is proud to be a support partner for the QiC Diabetes Awards.
Sarah Tutton, DRWF Chief Executive, said: “These awards provide a truly collaborative environment within which to share information and innovation in care delivery. We are delighted to support the QiC Diabetes programme and share in this recognition of achievement of inspiring and dedicated people. Even more so given the relentless challenges of the pandemic period, and the unwavering efforts that everyone put in to ensure that people with diabetes continued to receive the best quality care and support.”
The Quality in Care Diabetes awards provide a great opportunity to win one of the prestigious awards this year and have your work shared and disseminated to a wider healthcare setting.
The judging day will take place on Tuesday, 7th September and the QiC Diabetes 2021 Awards presentation will take place on Thursday, 14th October.

A new online entry portal will streamline entering, making the whole process much simpler for you – the entrants. This will enable complete control of your entries, changes to be made up to the deadline date (no more having to re- submit via email), clear instructions on what you need to include in your entry/entries and auto-confirmation that your entries have been received.
The judging criteria and entry format for the QiC Diabetes 2021 awards have been completely changed and more clearly reflect the criteria that the judges will be looking for.
