Frontline workers to be recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours
Do you know anyone who has made an exceptional contribution to the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency in Oxfordshire?
The Queen’s Birthday Honours list has this year been delayed to provide time for a public process of additional award nominations specifically for those on the front line of the COVID19 response. The criteria for such nominations are clearly set out on the relevant Honours website, the link for which is: https://www.gov.uk/honours/nominate-someone-for-coronavirus-work
The honours are made in Summer each year to mark the Queen’s official birthday and include awards to various orders or the award of decorations and medals.
They are presented by the monarch or a representative. The Birthday Honours are one of two annual honours lists, along with the New Year Honours.
Honours have been awarded with few exceptions on the sovereign's birthday since at least 1860, during the reign of Queen Victoria.
