NR Times Awards deadline extended

Entrants now have until September 8 to make their submissions to the inaugural Awards



Potential entrants to the first-ever NR Times Awards have an extra week to make submissions after the deadline was extended. 

After a huge level of interest in the inaugural Awards, and scores of submissions already received, the deadline has been moved back to Friday, September 8. 

With many now returning from summer holidays and expressing their wish to submit entries, the NR Times Awards will be open throughout next week and will welcome submissions in the 11 categories that remain open for entry, after entries for the Rehab Leader of the Year closed. 

The NR Times Awards – sponsored by Elysium Healthcare – have been created to recognise and reward excellence across the field of neuro-rehab, and highlight the commitment and dedication of the individuals, teams and organisations working to change lives. 

Aside from the Rehab Leader of the Year category, which will be decided via public vote, the other 11 categories will be judged by an independent panel of experts from across the field of neuro-rehab – which will be announced soon – as well as representatives from the sponsor of each category.
