Home Manager Shirley Woods has been Highly Commended at the prestigious regional 2021 Great British Care Awards. Shirley has been the Home Manager at Westfield Nursing Home since September 2020 and was nominated for her dedicated and caring approach. The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout the UK and a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
“We are delighted that Shirley has been recognised in the Registered Manager category at the GB Care Award in the East Midlands Region,” said Helen Richmond, Operations Director at Country Court. “Shirley is a fantastic manager; she is very hands-on and leads her team by example. She always has the best interests of the residents at heart which is everything we ask for in a Home Manager.”
GB Care Awards judges commented, “Shirley’s background is broad and varied – having started her career in the NHS. In talking with her, it’s apparent that she is passionate about delivering high quality care. She is focussed on maintaining the health and wellbeing of those in her care; telling me that “I am passionate about keeping people out of hospital”.
