You may use an alternate email address to nominate another member of the NHS to win. Nominations for Barbados Cares are limited to one per person per email address, however we know that all NHS staff are heroes and you may wish to nominate more than one. If you would like to enter more than one person, either use an alternative email address or ask a family member or friend who hasn’t already entered to nominate on your behalf by completing the same steps.
