The Natalie Barr Award
The Natalie Barr Award is a long term achievement award to recognise a BAHT member who has made a substantial contribution to hand therapy. This award has only been given six times in BAHT’s history which indicates the significance of the award and the high standard required to achieve this. Nominations can be made by any BAHT member with a proposer and seconder and confirmed by the Executive Committee.

The Hand Therapist of the Year Award
This award can be made annually. Nominations can be made by any BAHT member with a proposer and seconder and confirmed by the Executive Committee.
The recipient must be a BAHT member and is deemed to have made a contribution to hand therapy during the year of the award beyond that which would be expected in the course of normal working practice. This may include charitable work.

Accredited Hand Therapist (AHT) Award
These awards recognise that an individual therapist has achieved a standard of education within hand therapy. Therapists can gain points towards accreditation by attending BAHT courses and passing the course exams and coursework, by relevant evaluated prior learning or by completing Hand Therapy MSc modules. See the education section for further details on how to work towards accreditation.
BAHT is very proud of this award and has strived towards increased recognition of this award and over more recent years therapists from around the World have attended BAHT courses as their reputation has spread.
