The People's Award for Dignity in Care, launched this week by Sir Michael Parkinson and minister of state for care services Phil Hope, is the first ever award of its kind.

More than 3,000 NHS staff have become dignity champions, to promote dignity in care. To apply to join their ranks, visit www.dignityincare.org.uk

Nominations for the dignity awards will open shortly, and run until 6 March 2009. To register interest in making a nomination, visit www.healthandsocialcareawards.org.uk
