A trio of staff from a Bristol care home have been shortlisted for the prestigious Great British Care Awards south west region.
Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol, part of the Springhill Care Group, has three staff shortlisted: Sabrina Prewett shortlisted for the Newcomer Award, Julie Fowler for the Dignity Carer Award and Trudy Palmer for Frontline Leader.
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout England and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
The prestigious awards, designed to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work, is an annual event which includes several regional competitions and a national final.
The south west regional finalists will now be interviewed by the competition’s judges before gala dinner to be held in Bristol in November.
Donna Briggs, managing director of Springhill Care Group, said: “It’s fantastic to see the hard work of our staff highlighted and chosen for such a collection of prestigious awards, and we wish them all the best of luck.”
Springhill Care Group has individuals and teams shortlisted for a total of 11 categories. The winners from each region will go through to battle it out at the national finals which take place in spring 2017 at the ICC in Birmingham. All National Winners will be invited to a Parliamentary Reception.
