Jan Holt, Birch Green’s nutrition advocate, has been named one of the region’s top care professionals.
Jan won the Nutrition and Hydration award, part of the North West Great British Care Awards.
She was one of five staff members from Birch Green who were shortlisted for the respected awards, including Cathy Hague, Emma Nelson, Angela Hart and Sian Gardner.
She will now go on to represent the region in the National Great British Care Awards, expected to be held in London next year.
Jan won her award alongside Vici Beardsworth, operations manager for Affinity Supporting People, part of the Springhill Care Group – who scooped the Front Line Leader award.
Ken Nolan, chairman of Springhill Care Group, said: “Having so many members of staff shortlisted for categories in what are one of the industry’s most talked about awards was a tremendous recognition of the hard work that goes on across the group.
“Both Jan and Vici make such a difference to the lives of the people they care for, and were deserving winners. I’m sure everyone at Springhill would join me in congratulating them and wishing them all the best for the national awards.”
