Our Outstanding Service Contribution and Recognition Scheme (OSCARS) is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding work of teams and individuals in providing high quality mental health, intellectual disability, substance misuse and community health services.

We recieved 171 nominations for the OSCARS in 2018 and the judges had a very difficult job when selecting the shortlist.

The judging took place on 1 December 2017. The winners were annouced on 15 March 2018 at our awards ceremony at the East Midlands Conference Centre.

Special thanks go to all of our sponsors who helped to make the evening possible, and particularly to our headline sponsor Mitie and platinum sponsor Mills and Reeve.

If you would like to see highlights from the evening, head over to our Facebook page or use the hashtag #NottsOSCARS on Twitter.
