Dear Colleague Dental Profession Nominations for UK Honours I am writing to request your support in acknowledging those individuals who merit state recognition. We are now looking ahead to New Year 2021 Honours and I would appreciate it if you can take the time to nominate those colleagues who you work with who have made an outstanding impact in dental care and the improvement of oral health. Nominations can cover specific activities or a lifetime achievement. Status or seniority isn’t important – what matters is what the person has done and the impact they have had on people’s health and care over a sustained period of time. I would ask you to note that the workforce of the NHS is predominantly female. As such the Health Honours Committee is looking to reflect this in its awards.
