How could any of us have ever imagined that the International Year of the Nurse 2020 would end up like this. In all my 33 years as a Registered Nurse I have never experienced such challenges, but with these challenges has brought the opportunity to learn and grow both as a nurse and as a manager. I feel deeply honoured to have been awarded this amazing accolade. The Great British Care Awards celebrate excellence across the care sector and to have been nominated for  and won the  National Finals “Great British Care Awards Registered Manager” is just wonderful. Registered Managers of all care homes throughout the country including of course throughout Herefordshire have been through tremendously difficult, challenging and emotional times. They have shown bravery and resilience at every turn, I dedicate this award to each and everyone of them. Lets hope 2021 is the year where we can move forward with hope and optimism’.
