Care Professionals Rewarded For Excellence

2013 Award Winners_copywright www.philcrow.comHundreds of carers from across the country have been recognised for their outstanding achievements and commitment to person-centred care.

Staff from the Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) received special accolades at the leading not-for-profit care home provider’s regional Staff Award ceremonies, which took place last month.

Alongside awards for each region’s Carer of The Year, over 100 individuals from the Trust’s 69 national homes were recognised for going above and beyond the call of duty, showing an inspirational approach to specialist care practices and being role models for other carers and volunteers.

From the acclaimed Unsung Hero and Leader of The Year award to OSJCT’s Volunteer of The Year and Hospitality Award, the ceremonies saw individuals rewarded for their individual efforts and exceptional care practice.

A number of awards were also presented for between 25 and 40 years of service at the Trust, as well as certificates for care qualifications and OSJCT’s own Care & Quality Accreditation Awards.

Dan Hayes, Operations Director of The Orders of St John Care Trust, commented: “Every year we host our Staff Awards to reward carers for their dedication, hard work and outstanding personal achievement.

“Over the last few years OSJCT has gone from strength to strength, but we couldn’t have done this without our carers and volunteers, whose ongoing commitment and dedication has allowed us to lead the way in residential care.

“The four regional ceremonies are a great occasion for colleagues, residents, friends and partners of OSJCT to come together and celebrate the hard work of our staff, who are the real stars of the show.”
