Manager wins at national awards
A care worker from Ealing has been named as a Training Champion for the South East region at a national awards ceremony.
Michele Tricker, home manager at Kent Lodge care home in Pitshanger Lane in Ealing, received the award at Shaw healthcare’s annual Shaw Star Awards.
The Training Champion category recognised individuals who welcome learning new skills and ideas, and inspire their teams to embrace best practice.
Ms Tricker said: “This award came as a complete surprise. We are working in an environment where there is always something new to learn that will help to improve the lives of our residents. It has been a pleasure to learn new skills and to be able to feed them back to the team at Kent Lodge.
“I would like to say a special thank you to my team there who are all incredibly dedicated and hardworking.”
More than 200 people gathered at Norton Park Hotel in Winchester for the annual award ceremony, which celebrates the very best from amongst the more than 4,600 care workers working across Shaw’s UK facilities.
Jeremy Nixey, chief executive at Shaw healthcare, said: “Our annual Star Awards seek to recognise those individuals and teams across all of the services within Shaw healthcare who have demonstrated excellence in their day-to-day work during the course of the year; people who inspire others and deliver beyond expectations.
“Now in their fifth year, we can rightly be proud of the contribution that our people make to the quality of life of the vulnerable people in our care. We are also proud that nominations for those awards come not only from colleagues but from the people we care for and from their relatives and friends.”
