Nurses are arriving for a glittering ceremony at the luxury Savoy hotel in central London to celebrate excellence at the Nursing Standard Nurse Awards 2015.

They will enjoy a champagne reception and dinner at the world-famous hotel before the eagerly awaited ceremony, hosted by comedian and actor Rufus Hound.

Now in their 26th year, the awards recognise the best of nursing, with award categories including defence, public health and mental health nursing and the Nurse of the Year.

Leading nursing figures including Englands chief nursing officer Jane Cummings and RCN general secretary Peter Carter are joining nurses from across the UK to find out which of the 32 finalists will win.
