Violet Machona finalist presentation 

Earlier in the year Violet was selected out of over 1700 staff to win Newcross Excellence in Healthcare Award of the financial quarter and which won her a place in the prestigious annual final. Violet was chosen as she stood out above the other staff as having displayed excellent performance and commitment to Newcross the past year; she displayed positive and effective behaviours in her role of Trained Nurse through the Newcross Bristol office and upheld the values of the organisation.  The Senior Management Team were especially impressed with the appraisal scores and testimonials received from clients.

Violet originally started working for Newcross in January 2006 and had a short break away then returned in April 2010.  For over 5 years her appraisal scores and feedback from clients has been outstanding:

Comments from clients include: 

"Violet is a lovely person, well liked by both staff and residents.  She is very reliable"

"A credit to your agency- she is great"

"An exemplary member of staff, always arrives early for prompt handover.  Sensitivity towards relatives..empathic and highly professional.  A credit to your agency, will most definitely have her return"

Chris Dowle, Team Leader for Newcross Bristol office, was delighted when he heard the news that Violet had been selected as a finalist commenting that it's "Great News.  She is a star!"

Violet was presented with certificate and bottle of champagne by Team Leader, Chris Dowle earlier in the month.
