MacIntyre had been on a roll last year, scooping various different awards for staff teams, two based in Milton Keynes.
Great British Care Awards - North West, Friday 3 November 2017
Winner - Tina Dutton, Warrington – Dementia Carer
Winner - Will Black, Wirral – Frontline Leader
The judges said: “Tina is an inspirational and passionate person who has gone more than the extra mile to deliver high quality person-centred care. Tina’s courage, commitment and selfless acts of kindness continue to make a difference to place people at the centre of all she says and does. Tina is the difference.”
“Will has led his team to great success over the past year through support and innovative care. Will is always looking at the individual’s needs, be it the service user or carer.”
They now go through to the National Finals in Birmingham in Spring 2018.
Duke of Edinburgh Gold, 6 November 2017
The ‘Gold’ Duke of Edinburgh Group from Warrington were given their ‘gold’ badges in time for the award ceremony at St James Palace.
UK Dementia Congress, 7 to 9 November 2017
Under Secretary of State for Health Jackie Doyle-Price MP visited our stand. MacIntyre’s was one of only 3 stands she asked to visit.
At the Congress, MacIntyre were the chosen partner for the Learning Disability stream, which comprised three different sessions, with three different speakers at each session. Two particular case studies - Moira and Alison - were featured in these sessions; they can be found here: https://www.macintyrecharity.org/our-work/supporting-people-with-dementia/macintyre-dementia-project/
Trustees may also be interested to see this series of films made with Sarah Lancaster: https://www.macintyrecharity.org/our-work/supporting-people-with-dementia/macintyre-dementia-project/registered-managers-perspective/
Dementia Care Awards Winner - Dementia Project Team – Innovation Finalist - Emma Killick – Dementia Care Personality
Many great comments on social media, including this from Beth Britton, freelance campaigner and blogger who works on the project with MacIntyre: “About time this is recognised! I’ve been saying it for years that from my work with you, you’re streets ahead - being #personcentred and #relationshipcentred is just what you do, not an ‘add-on’. You support people, not disable them!”
Great British Care Awards – South East, Saturday 11 November
Winner – Staff team at The Haddons, Great Holm, Milton Keynes - End of Life / Palliative Care
The judges said: “Hearing Sarah (Lancaster) share Alison’s story is one which makes you feel inspired and grateful for people like her in the world. The determination, passion and commitment to keeping Alison at home was truly inspirational.”
The Haddons team now go through to the National Finals in Birmingham in Spring 2018, joining Will and Tina.
