ADPH Awards 2023

Following the success of our inaugural awards last year, we are delighted to be launching the ADPH Awards 2023, which will once again be held in a ceremony at the Annual Conference. There are five awards for individual DsPH as well as three team awards. The categories, which have been chosen to highlight and  celebrate good PH practice, are:

  • CMOs’ National Impact Award – for a DPH in recognition of the impact they have had since starting the role. This award is supported by the CMOs of all four nations.
  • Contribution to ADPH Award – for a DPH who has made a significant contribution to our work.
  • Innovative Practice Award – for a DPH who has demonstrated or championed innovative practice within their organisation.
  • Partnership Award – for a DPH who has led a successful local or national partnership with a sector or organisation.
  • Mentoring Award – for a DPH who has shown dedication and commitment to mentoring, either as part of the ADPH mentoring scheme or another public health mentoring programme.
  • Quality Improvement Award – for a public health team who have established effective ways to improve practice.
  • Team Award – for a public health team who have worked exceptionally well together to improve public health outcomes in their area.
  • Research Award – for a DPH and their team for undertaking public health research, or using research evidence in an innovative way, to inform decision making in their organisation.

Nominations are welcomed from anyone who has worked alongside DsPHs and/or PH teams via

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges, made up of Nicola Close, ADPH Chief Executive and representatives from the awards’ sponsors.

We are very much looking forward to reading the nominations and celebrating with you later this year. In the meantime, please do share the award information and nomination link far and wide!
