Do you know someone worthy of a UK national honour?

The UK national honours system recognises public service and achievement. Honours committees are looking for someone who has made a difference in their field of work or community.

Honours can be awarded for all sorts of work — paid or unpaid — but the nominee must still be involved in the activity for which they are nominated.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) can submit nominations for national honours where we agree that an RPS member stands out as having made a significant difference to society in their field of work. Recommendations received by the RPS will be reviewed before a decision is made on whether to submit the nomination. Approved nominations, and supporting information, will then be submitted to the Honours and Appointments Secretariat.
