Cheryl Gilderdale, Conny McGowan and Jackie Gilbert from Hartsholme House in Lincoln have been acknowledged for the ‘Outstanding Care Team Award’. Whilst for the ‘Healthy Nutrition Award’, Tracy Creek, Sandra Cox and Sarah Staples from Southfield House have been chosen.

Caroline Dunagan, Assistant Operations Director for Orders of St John Care Trust, commented: “Delivering the highest level of person-centred care is our utmost priority. Therefore, for our employees to be recognised as finalists at these awards is a testament to all of the passion and dedication our employees have in meeting the needs of our residents. It is important to acknowledge the dedication and commitment to care. I could not be prouder to have them as part of the team.”
