We are delighted to announce that we have been highly successful in the IHCP Healthcare Awards and Best Kept Healthcare Facility Awards.
In the Best Kept Healthcare Facility Award we are delighted that Aughnacloy House was runner-up in the Southern Region. Our Congratulations go to Sean Cassidy, Maintenance Person at Aughnacloy House, who with dedication and imagination presents Aughnacloy House to the highest standard with the support of the team in the Home. We were delighted when he collected that award on behalf of MD Healthcare at Fern House in Antrim. This is especially pleasing as for the past two years we have been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ so to achieve this accolade is a real tribute to Sean’s care and diligence on behalf of the residents at Aughnacloy House and all the team.
In the IHCP Awards, held at a sparkling gala dinner, we were finalists in three categories, Specialist Services (Optimum Nurse), Residential Care Team (Burleigh Hill House) and Flourishing Resident Award (Miss Strange, Burleigh Hill House).
We were absolutely delighted that the Specialist Nurse Lead, Karen Hickey was runner-up in the very hard fought category of Specialist Services for delivery of Home-based ICU services and the Residential Care Team at Burleigh Hill House were runner-up in their category for delivery of Residential Care.
These are excellent achievements and high recognition of the effort and skills of our staff by our peers – always the best acknowledgement to achieve!
This is a tremendous outcome for Domestic Care Group and we want to congratulate all those who were nominated, those who were finalists and those who won awards. Well done to all!
