Wallasey Clinical Nurse Manager honoured at national Values Awards

Exemplar Health Care recently hosted its annual Values Awards, an event to celebrate and recognise team members across all levels of the organisation.

The ceremony, held at Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester, celebrated individuals who embody the company’s core values and make a significant impact on the lives of the people they support and colleagues alike.

Jane Lockwood of Edgewater care home in Seacombe was honoured for her exemplary leadership and commitment to excellence. Jane’s tireless efforts in training and supporting her team, particularly in tracheostomy care, have significantly impacted the quality of care provided at the home, earning her the admiration of colleagues and residents alike.

One of her nominations read: “Jane has supported the nurses at Edgewater to thrive and transition from NHS roles into community-based care. She encourages personal development and has mentored every department in the home. I strongly believe that without Jane, Edgewater would not have progressed to its outstanding potential.”

In previous years, Exemplar Health Care supported Values Awards at the home level. However, having recently opened its 50th home, this year marked a significant milestone as the company expanded its recognition programme to include home, regional, and national level awards, allowing for greater celebration and recognition of colleagues across all levels of the organisation.

Adding a personal touch to the awards ceremony, videos featuring the resident and colleague nominators providing heartfelt insights into the exceptional qualities and contributions of the winners were shown.

This year, Exemplar Health Care received an overwhelming 2,769 nominations from across the company, demonstrating the outstanding dedication and commitment of its team members. Each nomination highlighted the exceptional contributions of individuals who consistently go above and beyond in their roles.

Speaking about Jane’s win, Selina Wall, Managing Director at Exemplar Health Care, expressed her gratitude for her dedication and commitment to excellence, “Jane displays all our values of fun, integrity, responsiveness, success and teamwork, and she works hard to ensure everyone in her team does too. She has made Edgewater care home such a success, particularly with regards to tracheostomy care, as she has continuously supported colleagues to develop their respiratory care skills.

“She has also supported countless nurses at Edgewater to thrive and transition from hospital roles into social care nursing. She is truly an exemplary colleague, and thoroughly deserving of this award!”

Jane Lockwood, winner of the Home Leadership National Award, commented on her recognition, “I am very flattered to be presented with this award. I try to make every day better for my team and the people we support, and it’s wonderful to be surrounded by colleagues who share this passion and who are dedicated to the amazing individuals we support. I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude for this tremendous honour.”
