The NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) introduced the Lammy Awards in 2015, to recognise council and NHS staff or teams who go the extra mile to provide exceptional health and care support in Lambeth. The awards aim to celebrate local heroes who help to make Lambeth a great place to live, and to support the local community to have better health outcomes.
This year, the awards ceremony was hosted at the Oval Cricket Club on 4th September. It was fantastic to see an impressive variety of health and care professionals, whose dedication and passion has led to an astounding level of healthcare improvements around the borough.
With 153 nominations submitted this year, CYPHP was delighted to hear that we had been shortlisted for The Lambeth Together Award – children’s services category. This award specifically acknowledges a ‘team or partnership that has worked effectively and efficiently to deliver clear benefits to children and young people in Lambeth across health, social or community environments.’

We would like to again congratulate the Youth Offending Service Health Team from Lambeth Council who deservedly won the award, and also reiterate that we were proud to be nominated alongside our colleagues from Evelina London Children’s Hospital Health Visiting and School Nursing Services.
The afternoon featured many inspirational stories showcasing the phenomenal people and services that contribute to resident’s health and wellbeing. And the overall sentiment of the event could not be better described than by Professor John Moxham (Director of Value Based Healthcare for King's Health Partners), who himself won The Outstanding Contribution to Public Health award. In his speech, he said:
“I’ve always felt part of a team. And if you feel part of a team, it’s amazing what you can achieve.”
