On Friday I spent the evening at Portsmouth Guildhall attending The News Best of Health Awards 2015, as I had been nominated for awards by a number of my clients and had made the short list of 6 candidates for The Unsung Hero award.
I am very humbled that so many of my clients took the time to write and submit nominations for the awards and see it as recognition and a reflection of the importance I place on the personal approach I take when I am finding the best quality care I can to meet the needs of my clients, so I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everybody who took the time to send in nominations, it was very much appreciated.
The evening was very enjoyable and it was a wonderful opportunity to spend the evening in the presence of other like minded individuals and organisations who are all working hard to provide the best quality care services possible in Portsmouth and the surrounding area.
Unfortunately I didn’t win the award but Eric Compton of Breathe Easy was a very deserving winner. We still spent the evening celebrating being short listed and had a wonderful time dancing the night away.
The awards ceremony overall was a great celebration of the good work that is taking place in health care in the local area and is a very worthy evening, but I did come away slightly disappointed that so much of the focus of the awards was on health rather than social care and so will be looking to speak with The News to see if there is anything that can be done to address the balance in the future, especially as two of the eight organisations that sponsored the event (Sisterly Care and Admiral Care) are domiciliary care agencies.
