Wellingborough care home worker wins award
A woman who works at a care home in Wellingborough has won an award for "going above and beyond" for those who live there.
Julie Dooley, who works at Lancum House in Bush Close, was crowned administrator of the year at Shaw Healthcare’s annual Shaw Star Awards.
She was praised by colleagues for her work supporting the 43 residents at the home, which provides care for older people, including those with dementia.
Judges said she had demonstrated the most significant contribution to the success and day to day running of a Shaw care service.
Ms Dooley, who also carries out a night shift as a carer once a week, said: “It’s an honour to have been recognised by my colleagues and peers at the Shaw Star Awards.
"It’s so great to join other staff members from across the UK to celebrate what we do and share best practice, to ultimately further improve the care we offer to service users.”
Jeremy Nixey, chief executive of Shaw Healthcare, said: “The Shaw Star Awards has become such an important fixture in the annual calendar. We are always delighted to be able to recognise the hard work of so many staff members in various roles and from across the Shaw Healthcare family.
“A lot has changed in the care industry since we launched the Shaw Star Awards in 2008, but what remains is a dedicated and compassionate workforce that strives to improve the lives of each and every one of our service users."
