Nominations open for Sirona Awards for Excellence 2019

By 21st June 2019No Comments

Our annual awards celebrate the achievements of staff as close to our birthday – 1 October – each year and we are looking for your help.

Simon Knighton, Sirona’s chairman, said: “We have always said our staff are the most important part of Sirona and recognising their achievements is really close to my heart. From the thousands of compliments and letters  which we receive each year from people in the communities we serve, we know our staff deliver high quality services day in, day out. They all give care as they would want for their own loved one which is part of our Taking it Personally ethos.

“While the majority of award categories are for internal nominations, we have one called “I think they deserve it” and we are looking for the public’s help to find a winner or winners. We want to hear about the person who brightened up your day because of their welcoming smile or who made a difference to your care in the way they tailored the service to suit you or something else.

“Last year we had so many nominations we gave two awards with the Hanham District Nursing Team scooping one and the staff at our Extra Care facility at St John’s Court in Bath the other. People told us about the hard work and dedication of both teams with the nurses  described by one individual as her “safety net” while the team at St John’s were praised for making a difference to a tenant’s life by encouraging her independence.”

If you want to nominate someone please send details to by 1 August 2019. Please include as much information about the person you are nominating as possible and include your details too.
