This year we had hundreds of entries and now our eight judges are tasked with selecting the most worthy winners.

The Sun’s editor-in-chief Victoria Newton said: “Our Who Cares Wins health awards is one of the most important nights on our calendar.

“Primarily this year we will remember our dear colleague and friend Dame Deborah James, whom we lost in June.

“She was a judge on Who Cares Wins for many years and created this year’s awards.

“This year’s nominees embody much of her generous and inspiring spirit, and by honoring her we will also pay tribute to her.”

Our winners will be honored at the London ceremony hosted by Davina McCall and on Channel 4 next month.

Like many of us, our judges are in awe of Britain’s healthcare heroes – and here they explain why they’re honored to be a part of Who Cares Wins.

ELLIE ORTON – Chief Executive, NHS Charities Together, our charity partner for Who Cares Wins

ALMOST all of us have a memory of how the NHS has helped us at some point in our lives – in both the happiest and the most difficult moments.

Each of us has our own, very personal reason to say thank you – and these awards are an opportunity for us to recognize the incredible people who take care of us and our families.

Since the pandemic, our NHS workforce has continued to face immense challenges, with increasing pressure on services and long waiting lists. And we know the challenges won’t stop there.

But despite these extraordinary circumstances, the staff left everything and provided excellent care.

And while it’s impossible for us to honor every untold story, we look forward to hearing from all of the extraordinary doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, surgeons, volunteers, researchers, charities and more who have changed your life.

CHRISTINE LAMPARD – TV presenter

WE all loved our NHS, health workers and volunteers before Covid, but never have we been more grateful to them than we are now.

And this award ceremony is probably more poignant than ever. Doctors and health workers haven’t had it easy – they all deserve an award.

These awards are a nice pat on the back for people who deserve them. And I think that’s so important.

I’m delighted that my three-year-old daughter Patricia wants to follow in the footsteps of our NHS heroes.

She only talks about doctors – she has her little doctor’s bag and her stethoscope and always wants to “make us better”. But really, there’s no one better to look up to.

The last time I went to the awards ceremonies, the conversations I had in the toilets with the family members of those involved were very nice.

It’s a wonderful night for the people who deserve it and that matters more now than ever.

TYRONE MINGS — Aston Villa and English footballer

WHEN I attended the Who Cares Wins Awards last year and presented an award, I was blown away.

We were there to honor so many incredible people, from the paramedics who nearly lost their life during an 911 call to the midwife who rushed to the aid of a new mom on a plane.

I was lucky enough to present the Young Hero Award to seven-year-old Carmela Chillery-Watson.

She didn’t let her muscular dystrophy stop her from raising £100,000 to fund research into the disease by walking hundreds of miles disguised as Wonder Woman.

People talk about footballers being role models for younger people, but I think the real role models are our health heroes – the ones who go the extra mile for all of us.

It is an honor to be a judge this year, although of course it will be very difficult to choose between the well-deserved nominees.

Every single one of them deserves an award.

DR. ZOE WILLIAMS – GP of The Sun

IT IS an absolute honor to be a judge at the Who Cares Wins Awards this year.

As someone who worked as both a doctor and healthcare assistant for many years before entering medical school in the NHS, I have witnessed firsthand the incredible hard work, selflessness and dedication that goes into this job.

There are so many people who push themselves and never expect to be recognized for what they do.

But they absolutely deserve it and these awards are an incredible way to shine a light on some of the amazing people who hold up our wonderful NHS.

It’s a great opportunity for the public to remember what an amazing healthcare system we have.

It’s not perfect at all, but without a doubt the people working on it are pretty incredible.

PENNY LANCASTER – Loose Woman Panelist

OUR health heroes are the real rock stars – they are the people who should inspire us all.

They’ve battled the coronavirus, still work tirelessly under greater pressure than ever, and even found time to help victims of the war in Ukraine.

I’ve been a supporter of Who Cares Wins since it launched in 2017 – and the incredible heroic stories never cease to bring me to tears.

We are so fortunate to have these amazing people among us who are trying so valiantly to help others during critical times and to keep us safe and healthy.

Like everyone else, my family and I have relied on healthcare many times over the years.

Whether my son fell off a railing or my dad needed emergency care after suffering a heart attack, we are always so grateful that they are there for us in times of need.

Now it’s time to say thank you.

It is true that some of the most important people in our society will take center stage on this special evening.

ADAM KAY – The Doctor turned bestselling author and comedian

THE NHS has never been an easy place to work, but it has never been more so than in recent years.

We have seen the brilliant individuals who make up the health service go above and beyond to keep the rest of us on our toes. Without their victims, the whole thing could have collapsed.

At times it feels like all you hear is complaints about the NHS, but that’s really only the fault of the creaky system and not the incredible people who work in it and give so much.

It’s wonderful to be able to say thank you. I just wish we could give an award to every person who works for, or otherwise supports, the NHS.

There is no healthcare job that is accepted for money or praise. You do it because you want to make a difference and help people. It’s the most rewarding job in the world, but it’s still nice to give some of the most extraordinary heroes a little extra reward.

Who Cares Wins is always a highlight of my year. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, some breathtaking, and all are deeply moving.
