The Newcross Excellence in Healthcare Award is a coveted award made every quarter to the winning finalist selected from employees working across the business, and annually to the individual showing the most outstanding performance and commitment in their work.

Newcross Healthcare MD, Michelle Pattrick RN, said, "The standard of entries has again been exceptionally high and this was a very tough decision. Dorothy is a long standing member of staff, she has worked for us since 2005, first of all in Taunton before transferring to Perth. She has consistently maintained her excellent standards working in a number of settings as an HCA, Home Carer and a Domestic when a home had key challenges due to illness. She is a perfect example of a caring and compassionate care giver."

One client commented, "Dorothy is very thorough, polite, conscientious and courteous to our clients."

Dorothy was nominated from a team of over 2,000 permanent members of our healthcare staff including nurses, healthcare assistants, support workers and home carers.
