Carers Gold Award Achieved

We are pleased to announce that we have gained the Wiltshire Investors in Carers Gold Level Award.

To achieve this award we needed to meet more than a dozen requirements that included maintaining an up-to-date carers register, have a carers lead, provide flexible appointments for carers and hold a minimum of 1 carers clinic per year.

We have previously hosted 2 coffee mornings for registered carers where they were able to meet people from local charities to gain information that they may not have been aware of and we also held a carers health check morning to allow a certain number of carers to have a medical to make sure they are fit and well to care for loved ones.

Our carers lead Jane Oakley & Deputy Carers lead Lauren Edgar, both members of the Reception Team, attended a special awards ceremony to collect the award.

This is our 3rd award having also achieved Bronze and Silver. We are going to aim to achieve the Gold Plus award at next years awards.
