Dorothy McHardy wins Annual Excellence in Healthcare Award 2012-2013

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Dorothy McHardy, a Registered General Nurse from our Perth branch, has been awarded the Annual Excellence in Healthcare Award for 2012 - 2013.

Dorothy was the winner of our quarterly Excellence in Healthcare Award in January, and was considered for the annual award alongside fellow winners and nominees Morag Greig, Rebecca Cordiner, Emma Beal and Munashe Mhembere. As the winner of the Annual Excellence in Healthcare Award, Dorothy was presented with a cheque for £500, as well as a beautiful bouquet of flowers, trophy and certificate in recognition of her efforts.

The calibre of this year's nominees was excellent, however Dorothy was chosen for her continued commitment to an exceptional standard of care, with a range of clients returning perfect staff assessments in addition to numerous glowing comments about her work ethic and professionalism.

Perth Business Centre Manager, Aaron Goodrum, originally nominated Dorothy because of her flexibility in working with various new clients, consistently acting as a fantastic ambassador for Newcross and the services we provide. Aaron was delighted to see Dorothy receive the recognition her hard work deserved, winning the quarterly award and now the annual award also.

Managing Director Michelle Pattrick, RN, said "The Annual Excellence in Healthcare Awards has a history of winners who share our commitment to high quality, exceptional care, and Dorothy is no different. Her dedication and passion have made her a worthy winner, and we are delighted to have her as part of our healthcare team. We would like to congratulate Dorothy and her fellow nominees once more, and thank them for the fantastic care they provide as part of the Newcross team".

With the first quarter of a new financial year already coming to a close, nominations are soon to be considered for our next quarterly winner of the Excellence in Healthcare Award. With an announcement to be made in the coming weeks, the winner will be the first nominee in the Annual Excellence in Healthcare Award for 2013-2014 and could potentially join Dorothy as a winner of this prestigious award next year!
