The Dorothy Hopwood Award for Professional Achievement recognises a dietetic support worker who has made a valuable and significant contribution to the profession.

This award is open to dietetic support workers who are BDA members and who can demonstrate innovation and new ways of working within nutrition and dietetic services. The project/work may be undertaken on a multi-disciplinary basis though the contribution of the dietetic support worker must be clearly illustrated within the application.

Following a number of requests the deadline for applications has been extended to 10am on Monday 27 September 2021.

The awards will be presented at our virtual awards ceremony on the evening of Thursday 4 November 2021.
