Trust’s care services recognised with prestigious team award

The St Monica Trust’s care home and domiciliary care colleagues have been recognised with the Chief Nurse Adult Social Care Team Award.

The Chief Nurse Adult Social Care Awards were set up to recognise the outstanding contributions made by social care workers and nurses in England. They celebrate nurses and care workers who go above and beyond their everyday roles to provide excellent care, leadership, and inspiration to their colleagues, residents and patients and those who use their services.

The award was presented in a virtual ceremony by the Government’s Chief Nurse for Social Care, Deborah Sturdy.  She said: “I’m delighted to give a massive “thank you” for all you do and offer my congratulations on your consistently outstanding delivery of such a multitude of services within the St Monica Trust.

“Your award is a richly and rightly deserved recognition for all that you do and of your progressive thinking about how you deliver care and support for your residents. Individuals like you really do make a difference to people’s lives every single day and I’m delighted to be able to celebrate that with you.”

The ‘team’ award was a new category added for 2023 to celebrate group achievements up and down the country. It recognises the enormous range of skills, expertise and compassion modern adult social care teams deliver every day of the year.

The St Monica Trust’s Director of Care Sara Naylor-Wild, said: “Thank you to Deborah and the board who reviewed all the nominations and we’re very grateful to receive this prestigious award. It’s recognition of the Trust’s one team approach and how everybody contributes to the delivery of outstanding care in our care homes and retirement villages.

“As well as acknowledging our care teams’ excellent clinical skills, it is pleasing to see the new roles, such as RSAs and house leads that were introduced as part of the care home restructure to add value to communication and opportunities for engagement, also being recognised with this award.

“The collaborative working seen every day between the care teams across the Trust’s care homes and retirement villages is testimony to their ongoing dedication and commitment to creating communities where older people flourish.”
