The Fed’s annual employee awards were presented during the Manager’s Meeting on Zoom on 7th April. Despite the socially-distanced setting, these coveted awards come as an huge endorsement for the incredible work done by staff throughout the organisation.

A massive congratulations to all the very worth winners:

Employee of the Year – Enid Band

“Not only has Enid shown her dedication in working for the organisation for many years, she refused to let Covid-19 keep her away from the office, utterly determined month by month to make sure that staff salaries were processed in time.”

Outstanding Contribution Award – Ashleigh Duffy

“Ashleigh has proved to be a key member of ‘every’ team. She has battle against the odds of managing staff absences during Covid-19 to ensure that all units were staffed, and took on daily challenges always with a positive smile. Ashleigh links with almost every team across the organisation.”

Simon Jenkins Award for Excellence in Nursing – Karen Clarke

“Karen has been with the FED for an amazing 34 years! She is a reliable, conscientious and an excellent clinician. Karen looked after Dr Simon Jenkins and played an instrumental part in keeping him comfortable and nursed him right to the end. She is a true Florence Nightingale!”

Team of the Year – All of The Fed’s care teams

“What can’t be said about the brilliant care teams that we have at Heathlands Village? You fought your own fears in order that our residents were cared for throughout Covid-19. It was challenging and often emotional for everyone, but for none more so than the carers who continued to provide direct care for residents who themselves were suffering from Covid-19.”

Congratulations also to each of our Employee of the Month winners from 2020, who were all entered into the Employee of the Year award contention.
