Nominations 2021

SHORT LISTEE INFORMATION FOR THE SKELLERN LECTURE & JPMHN LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD


If you wish to nominate a colleague you are asked to check with the person that you wish to nominate to ensure that they are happy for their name to go forward, and that they can fulfil the commitments listed below (sections 1-4).  The same process is involved for the appointment of the host venue. Nominees for both awards have historically tended to come mainly from a core mental health nursing background, but in the spirit of Eileen Skellern’s vision for a multi-disciplinary approach to  mental health, nominations for colleagues from a variety of backgrounds are welcomed. ALL NOMINATIONS CAN BE SENT TO: Dr Joy Bray, joy.bray@talktalk.net (appointment panel co-chair) Professor Sally Hardy, s.hardy@uea.ac.uk (appointments panel co-chair).


CLOSING DATE FOR SKELLERN LECTURER and JPMHN LIFETIME RECIPIENT NOMINATIONS WILL BE December 14th  2020.   


1) The candidate, should they be appointed, must be available to deliver the lecture on the date agreed Thursday 10th June 2021.  The host organisation for 2021 is The Cassel Hospital and West London NHS Trust.


2) Nominees for the ES lecture are asked for a title & synopsis of their lecture (no more than 300 words).  Lifetime Achievement Nominees are asked to provide a short biography (150-300). This information will be forwarded to the appointments committee panel.  The short list and appointments, including host organisation will be announced in October.     


3) The appointments panel consists of former recipients, sponsors, student representatives (since 2010) and organisers of the ES & JPMHN awards. The panel members vote for the candidates ranking each nominee (eg 1,2,3,4,5) - voting separately for each award.  The candidate with the lowest score in each short list is appointed.   The voting matrix is available only to panel members.  In the event of a panel member being nominated that panel member will not be able vote for that appointment.
