In the heart of Yorkshire, countless souls have touched lives and inspired change. Among these, Dr. Kate Granger’s legacy stands prominently, a testament to the remarkable difference one individual can make.

Dr Kate Granger

Through the Kate Granger Award for Outstanding Contribution, we honour this spirit and seek to recognise others who follow in her inspiring footsteps.

Dr. Kate Granger: A Legacy of Compassion and Change

In 2011, a devastating diagnosis turned Dr. Kate Granger’s world upside down. As both a doctor and a patient, Kate was confronted with terminal cancer. However, adversity often reveals the strength of the human spirit, and in Kate's case, it unveiled an undying resolve to initiate positive change. Despite her personal battles, 2013 saw the launch of her 'Hello My Name Is' campaign, a movement focusing on compassionate patient care. This campaign serves as a beacon of empathy and communication in the medical community and beyond.

Tragically, in 2016, Kate's journey came to an end. Yet, her legacy endures powerfully. Kate’s life, though short, was saturated with purpose, passion, and an unwavering dedication to bettering the lives of those around her.
