A nurse working at Scotia Heights in Stoke-on-Trent, has been recognised for her hard work with a national care award

Clinical nurse manager, Rebecca Hyland, has been announced as the winner of The Good Nurse Award at this year’s Great British Care Awards. The national final, which took place over the weekend, welcomed care home workers from across the country to celebrate the very best of social care.

Rebecca, who has worked at Scotia Heights in Stoke-on-Trent for six years as a nurse before recently being promoted to clinical nurse manager, was praised by the judges for her person-centred approach to care. Rebecca won the regional competition for West Midlands earlier this year after being nominated by a colleague earlier, which subsequently solidified her spot in the national finals.

Commenting on her win, the judges said: “Rebecca was able to show a clear understanding for the needs of her staff and her residents. Through her own practice and level of commitment, she has developed relationships that have proven to be so important to the service users, that they consider her to be part of their family.”

Rebecca was handed her award at the event on Saturday by TV star and radio host, Mark Wright. She added: “I’m thrilled to have won this award. I’ve been working at Scotia Heights for a few years now and have been recently promoted to clinical nurse manager, so to be awarded the Good Nurse Award is just incredible.

“I couldn’t have done it without the brilliant team at Scotia Heights and Exemplar Health Care, I’m immensely grateful for their ongoing support.”

Rachel Calladine, Business Development Director at Exemplar Health Care, said: “We’re so pleased for Rebecca and all of the winners at this year’s Great British Care Awards.

“There is so much incredible work going on in the industry at the moment, so we are delighted when the hard work of our dedicated and caring employees is recognised. Rebecca is an asset to Exemplar Health Care and she should proud of everything she has achieved in her role so far.”
