What is the award?

Each year, Starlight celebrates National Play in Hospital Week which highlights the work of Health Play Specialists and all of those health professionals who make hospital appointments easier by using the Power of Play.  

Starlight’s Health Play Specialist of the Year Awards are back to celebrate the amazing work of those who go above and beyond to facilitate play for children and young people in hospitals and hospices across the UK, and this year we have a new category.
