Moreton Hill Care Centre, Barchester's first care home, won the Caring Business Care Home of the Year Award, while the company's Welsh homes scooped three gold awards and one bronze awards at the Wales Care Awards.

Moreton Hill in Gloucester beat more than 100 care homes across the country to the coveted prize at an awards ceremony held in Birmingham. The award, spearheaded by social care magazine Caring Business, recognises excellence and teamwork by care providers.

Meanwhile across the border, Barchester came out on top with four awards at the Wales Care Awards. Stephen Matthews from Llys Y Tywysog care home in Grovesend won the Joint Gold Award for Catering in Care while Mandy Bevan from Rhiwlas care home in Flint was awarded the Bronze Award for Commitment to Training and Workforce Development.

Glangarnant, a care centre in Ammanford, celebrated as Leeanna Morris picked up the Joint Gold award for Leading By Best Practice Care in Learning Disability Services and Sion Davies from Dan Y Greig care home in Kidwelly celebrated winning the Gold Award for Promoting Fulfilled Lives.

Mike Parsons, Chief Executive and Founder of Barchester Healthcare, said: "These results are better than we could ever have hoped for! I am so proud of all the homes, especially Moreton Hill which the first home I opened when I founded Barchester Healthcare. I am pleased that the excellence and teamwork at the core of Barchester's values have been recognised. This is testament to the high quality standards that we uphold."

Barchester Healthcare is through to the finals of the Scottish Care Awards, to be held on 20th November in Glasgow, and the National Care Awards, held on 28th November in London.
