The Briardene Unit at South View, led by June Hoggart has been awarded 'Team of the Year' at the Barchester Care Awards 2017.
The judges said: ''The team at Briardene were Divisional Winners in this category last year and it's clear to see how they have made the cut again. This upbeat team work incredibly hard to deliver a consistently high standard of care and it's not just me saying that - in their most recent CQC report they were rated 'Outstanding' for the Caring domain, which is a hugh achievement. A number of the Briardene team talked about working with the residents and families. As Christine (also a Divisional Winner in the Nurse of the Year category) said, if you want to know how Maureen is today, sit and ask her, don't read a document. When I was at Briardene I was introduced to a number of relatives who told me what they thought of the team. One lady actually said that when she visits her husband at the home, she leaves in a better mood than when she arrived!
Congratulations to the team at Briardene.
