Hospice heroes shortlisted
Our invaluable housekeeping team, often referred to as our ‘hospice heroes’, have successfully been shortlisted as finalists of the Caring UK Awards in the ‘quality in housekeeping’ category.
Pictured here with head of inpatient services Kathy Newbould, our six devoted housekeepers have dedicated nearly 40 years of service combined to Saint Michael’s.
Kathy says, “Our housekeeping team contribute to the overwhelming sense of warmth that is felt throughout our hospice. They are hardworking, dedicated and put 110% into everything they do – the attention to detail they show in their housekeeping work is mirrored by the care and attention they give to each patient, treating them as individuals and getting to know what is important to them.
“They take time out of their day to make sure that patients know they are valued and cared for, helping us to provide the most personalised care.”
As we thank this special team for their continued hard work and dedication, we hope you’ll join us in wishing them the very best of luck in the finals of the awards which take place this December in York.
