Hallmark Care Homes shortlisted for five National Care Awards
Hallmark Care Homes Managing Director and five team members have been shortlisted for the National Care Awards.
Noteworthy employees; Jordan Brewer, Diane Bancroft, Sujjata Singh, Jane Elton and Sue Povey, from our homes; Ty Enfys, Anya Court and Greenhill Manor are in the running for ‘Best Care Activities Co-ordinator’, ‘Best Care Team,’ ‘Best Care Chef’ and ‘Best Care Registered Nurse’ at the annual award ceremony.
Managing Director, Avnish Goyal has also been shortlisted for the celebrated ‘Care Personality of the Year’ category.
The National Care Awards, first established in 1998 by leading care publication Caring Times, seek to acknowledge and celebrate the very best people in the long-term care sector.
The prestigious nominations follow in the footsteps of this year’s Hallmark Care Homes company awards ceremony, where Jane Elton and Susan Povey were named ‘Care Chef of the Year’ and ‘Nurse of the Year’. Jordan Brewer and Sujjata Singh were also recognised for their outstanding care, narrowly missing out on an award.
Avnish, who is the Chair of Care England, was also recognised at this year’s Health Investor Power Fifty Awards, where he was named 10th out of 50 of the UK’s most influential health care leaders.
Avnish Goyal said: “The team and I are incredibly proud to have been shortlisted for this year’s National Care Awards, following on from last year’s success where we were awarded ‘Care Group of the Year.’
“At Hallmark, everything we do is dedicated to enabling our residents to enjoy life to the full as individuals, in happy, comfortable and safe surroundings. Being shortlisted is a fantastic recognition from the sector.”
The 2015 winners will be named at a glittering ceremony hosted by comedian Hugh Dennis at the Hilton Metropole on Friday 27th November.
Dr Richard Hawkins, editor in chief of Caring Times, which organises the event, said: “The aim of the National Care Awards over the last seventeen years is to identify and reward the very best people in long-term care.
“At a time of unprecedented challenges to the long-term sector, it is vital we attract, support and nurture the people upon whom so many older highly dependent people rely. The National Care Awards is proud to be at the centre of that process.”
