CELEBRATING SUCCESS | September’s Outstanding Award Winners

The Bewdley Hill Team are September’s Outstanding Winners!

National Care Group’s Outstanding Achievement Award Winners for September 2022 are the Bewdley Hill Team from Endurance Care Worcestershire

The Bewdley Hill Team were nominated by their Registered Manager Kelly Smith for their major progress with a person they support called Kay. In under 6 months, Kay had been supported to stop self-harming, become more mobile, access the community, loose over six stone in weight, and manage a new diagnosis of diabetes and sleep Apnoea.

The Bewdley Hill Team are a brilliant example of how our Colleagues really go above and beyond in the support they deliver. The Executive Team, who score the nominations, were in awe of their achievement.
