Barchester Healthcare Scoops Prestigious RoSPA Healthcare Sector Award Win for the Fourth Time

Barchester Healthcare is celebrating after fighting off stiff competition to land another internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Barchester Healthcare has once again been named RoSPA Health and Safety Healthcare Sector Winner for working hard to ensure its staff, residents, patients and visitors are safe, and for demonstrating the best health and safety performance during 2022. It is the fourth time in five years that Barchester has won this sector-wide award for its commitment to health and safety excellence.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Dr Pete Calveley CEO of Barchester Healthcare said:
“At Barchester, our residents are at the heart of everything we do. There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our residents, patients and staff, all our teams work tirelessly to achieve the best hygiene and infection control standards possible. I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of all the brilliant people who make up Barchester and who go above and beyond every single day to deliver the best possible care.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, commented:

The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.”
