Staff at Orchard Care Homes’ The Three Bridges care home in Warrington have reached the regional finals of the Great British Care Awards.
Danielle Johnson, who works in administration, has been nominated for two awards: Care Home Worker Award and Putting People First Award. Jamie Ashton, clinical lead, and Whitney Stokes, unit manager, have both been nominated for the Social Care Nurse of the Year Award.
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events designed to celebrate excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
There are a total of 21 awards categories, representing all areas of the social care sector, from specialist services to residential or home care, and from frontline staff such as care workers and care managers to people who have made an impact in areas such as training and innovation.
The North West Regional Finals of The Great British Care Awards take place at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester on 12 November 2022.
Val Marston, home Manager at The Three Bridges, said: “It’s fantastic for Danielle, Jamie, and Whitney to be recognised for all their hard work, dedication, and commitment to every resident in making their lives safe, secure and happy. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that they are successful and reach the National finals in 2023.”
