What are the Who Cares Wins Awards?
Our awards, held annually since 2017, celebrate our amazing doctors, nurses, midwives, surgeons, volunteers, researchers and charity workers.
The awards are sponsored by The National Lottery and held in conjunction with NHS Charities Together. Last year generous Sun readers raised over £1million for the charity in order to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.
This year's awards are especially important – as they will give thanks to the Brits who kept the UK going throughout the pandemic.
Victoria Newton, Editor in Chief of The Sun, said: “There is a crucial public interest in commemorating those who went above and beyond to keep us safe, and I look forward to celebrating the tremendous effort given by those people in such challenging circumstances.”
The full list of award categories are:
- Best Doctor
- Bet Nurse
- Best Team
- Unsung Hero
- Best Midwife
- Ultimate Lifesaver
- Young Hero
- Groundbreaking Pioneer
- Mental Health
- The Christina Newbury Memorial Award

Speaking ahead of the awards, the PM said: “Through my own battle with Covid, I saw first-hand quite how brilliant our NHS is.
“I can’t wait to meet all of the worthy winners in person, hear their stories, and give them my very personal thanks.”
