Finalist at the Skills for Care Accolade Awards

March 2017

What an honour to be one of only four finalists in the Skills for Care Accolades Awards!

Middleton Hall was shortlisted in the category of Best Employer (51-249 employees) and we travelled to the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool for a Gala Dinner to celebrate the awards. We didn’t win but the event was a memorable experience and highlighted ways in which we can continue on our journey to achieve excellence.  We were delighted that Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector of Social Care at the CQC (pictured here, right, lower row) made a point of making contact to congratulate Middleton Hall on its Outstanding CQC rating.

The ceremony was the finale of a day’s conference, attended by Fiona Green, HR and Marketing Manager. Both during the conference and at dinner, it was a fantastic opportunity to meet and speak to other organisations that, like Middleton Hall,  strive to be the best. Dame Moira Gibb CBE, Chair of Skills for Care commented

“What unites all our impressive finalists is not just their clear commitment to supporting the learning and development of their people, but an ability to be innovative in the way they deliver care and support services”

As well as being an occasion to recognise high achievers, it was without doubt also a celebration. TV celebrity Samia Ghadie was an entertaining host for the evening and a live band provided the music for a spot of dancing. All in all it was a great night, and one that only make us more determined to continue with our progress and return in 2018.
