Kelly wins Best Care Innovator award!

Hot on the heels of Sophie Richard’s best care newcomer win on Saturday (10th), Kelly Roberts has won the Best Care Innovator award at the Great British Care Awards – East of England region!

This is fantastic news and we are absolutely delighted for Kelly.

His joint partnership with the local GP, introducing the gold card scheme at Hulse Avenue for people with Profound and Multiple Disabilities, has really improved the care and service for his customers.

Kelly attended the gala dinner on Thursday night (15th November), along with colleagues from the Care Team from Foxburrow Grange, our residential, nursing and dementia care home, who were shortlisted in the Best Care Team category.  Around 400 people came together to promote best practice in the care sector and to celebrate the amazing work of care staff.

Kelly and the Foxburrow Grange team had a brilliant evening, culminating in Kelly winning his category of Best Care Innovator.  See news story for details of Kelly’s nomination.

What a fantastic night –  congratulations Kelly!

I am thoroughly honoured to be recognised and I dedicate this award to the customers who’s platform was used for the pilot launching of the gold card on the 13.12.17.

In addition, I am very proud and happy to share this award with Dr Singh of Lynwood Medical, for partnering with me in our joint initiative to promote this gold card scheme, which has led to a very positive outcome for all stakeholders.

I was very excited to receive the award, but I would have been much happier if the customers at Hulse avenue, who gave me the platform to shine, had been with me.
