Working in health and care can be both rewarding and challenging. We all know support workers, apprentices, unpaid carers, volunteers, workplace teams and organisations and individuals who champion support staff training and development.
The Excellence Centre team are keen to showcase these colleagues and recognise the contribution they make to the health and care system in West Yorkshire and Harrogate through awarding them with an accolade and sharing their stories through social media and here on our website.
If you have colleagues who deserve to be recognised please drop us an email with some brief background information and reasons why you wish to nominate them.
WYHEC Support Staff Accolades: April 2019
Congratulations to Catherine Nevin and Hayley Devanney from Hft who were recently awarded WYHEC Support Staff Accolades.
Catherine is supporting people with Autism and behaviours that present a challenge.
She is a committed staff member who is extremely attentive and makes a real difference to the people and their families that Hft supports every day.
Hayley supported someone with learning disabilities through the traumatic experience of losing their sole parent. She has shown real empathy and extreme kindness through a very sensitive and difficult time.
WYHEC Support Staff Accolades : March 2019
Madhia works at Hopton Cottage Care Home in Mirfield and has excelled in her role as a member of the care team. She has benefitted hugely from the structure of the learning context of the apprenticeship and has sought to demonstrate her new skills and understanding. Her approach to both service users and colleagues is always thoughtful and always displayed a willingness to do whatever is necessary and to offer constructive contributions when difficult situations arise. She is extremely reliable in terms of her time-keeping and attendance.
