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.

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
