Nominations for Extra Mile Award

The MND Association understands what a difference exceptional health and social care professionals can make to your life. That's why we've created an award scheme to celebrate these special people.

How do I nominate?

You can nominate using our EMAs - Nomination Form

Who is eligible?

Nominations will be accepted from anyone living with MND, that includes people diagnosed with MND, a carer or family member.

Nominations must be for a health or social care professional such as:

Occupational Therapist, Respiratory Nurse, Speech and Language Therapist, Palliative Care Nurse, Doctor, MND Specialist Nurse, Physiotherapist, Dietician, Social Worker, Benefits Officer, Housing Officer, or a health and social care team.

If you are not sure that your nominated person is eligible please contact your Association Visitor or Area Support Coordinator.

Health or social care professionals nominated will receive an award to recognise their commitment and hard work.

What happens next?

Award winners will be notified. If possible we would encourage you to present the award to the health and social Care professional at your local branch or group AGM.

The award winner will be presented with a special EMA badge and certificate. A letter will also be sent to their immediate Manager at their Hospital/Primary Care Trust/Social Services.

Entry deadline

Due to the success of the EMA's and because we want anyone affected by MND at any time of the year to have the opportunity to nominate a professional or even a team of professionals, the EMA's is now a rolling awards scheme. There is no closing date and entries can be submitted at any time.

Queries and requests for further information should be directed to the MND Association's Care Development Team, on 01604 250505.
