We are extremely pleased to announce that our Registered Manager, Ben Chudley has won the 'Home Care Manager Award' at the 2014 Great British Care Awards held in Brighton in November.
Ben was among several Nightingales Golden Care employees shortlisted for awards at the ceremony, many of whom has been nominated by our service users.
The fact that our service users wanted to nominate some of our care staff for awards shows the excellent level of care that is being provided by our staff in Portsmouth and Hampshire and it's great to see that has been recognised by an external organisation such as the Great British Care Awards.
Ben was extremely proud to receive his award and said that he dedicated it to all of the staff members who work so hard providing excellent care in the community in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas, which makes his job a lot easier and more enjoyable. The judging panel stated that one of the reasons Ben was awarded the Home Care Manager Award was because he was focused on delivering for his clients, team and business.
