Nominations for National Honours

Find out how to nominate someone for a National Honour. The College‘s Nominations Committee, which is chaired by the President, meets regularly to discuss nominations for national honours. This Committee tries to increase the number of National Honours awarded both to psychiatrists and to other individuals who have made a significant contribution to mental health.

The College opens the call for entries in late January each year and will submit up to three nominations for each round.

The Cabinet Office has a very useful website describing the procedure for nominations.

There are two cycles for submitting National Honours nominations:
  • The New Year’s Honours list – submission by early October
  • Queen’s birthday Honour list – submission by early March.
