Tameside nursing staff win Great British Care Awards

17 Nov 2014 - Press Release

 Two nurses in Tameside have received regional awards for providing outstanding care to patients in the community.

 Matron Janet Robson and Healthcare Assistant Jean Wood were presented with Great British North West Care Awards, which recognise the best examples of healthcare in the region.

 Janet Robson, Modern Matron for Dignity in Tameside and Glossop trains staff in the Daisy Accreditation which promotes dignity in care in Tameside and Glossop, and more recently in Stockport as well.

 Janet won her award in the Care Innovator section, along with two others, for helping to ensure staff have the confidence and capability to speak up if the right standards are not being met. 

 Jean Wood is a Healthcare Assistant with the learning disability health provider team in Tameside and Glossop. She helps people with learning disabilities get the personalised care and support they need to maintain their independence. 

 Jean won in the Dignity in Care category and was applauded for going the extra mile in her work.  This included driving a patient to hospital in her own car after he shift had finished as he was too scared to go to hospital in an ambulance.

Judith Morris, Director of Nursing for Stockport NHS Foundation Trust which runs community health services in Tameside and Glossop said, “Janet and Jean both deliver the highest level of compassion in care to patients, which everyone should aspire to. We are thrilled that they have been recognised with these well-deserved awards.”
