National nurse-led complex health care provider The Complete Group has been selected as a multiple finalist in awards schemes celebrating excellence in the care sector.
Complete, who provides specialist care that enables adults and children with spinal cord or brain injuries and other disabling conditions to live independently at home, has been shortlisted in the two categories of the Great West Midlands Care Awards.
Care Co-ordinator Lee Tarrant has been chosen as a finalist in the Frontline Leader award, for his strong leadership and effective management of the care package of an acquired brain injury client in Birmingham, which has included ensuring the client has avoided hospital admission for the last two years.
Liuda Kozel, also a Care Co-ordinator, has been shortlisted in the Putting People First category. Her nomination highlighted the way she works collaboratively with her client, who has complex care needs, including by taking as much time as necessary to discuss procedures that he is reluctant to agree to and why they will benefit him.
In the Great South West Care Awards, Personal Assistants Kate Denton, Nakkita Cutting, Katie Morris and Rebecca Adams have been nominated in the Care Team category, for the way their person-centred support of a quadriplegic and fully ventilated client contributes to her independence and quality of life.
Meanwhile, Care Co-ordinator Lucy Clayton has been shortlisted in the Great Yorkshire and Humberside Care Awards, in the Putting People First category. Lucy leads a team of Personal Assistants supporting a York-based client with a spinal injury, enabling her to be fully involved in the lives of her young children.
The Great West Midlands Care Awards, the Great South West Care Awards and the Great Yorkshire and Humberside Care Awards are among the regional schemes that make up the Great British Care Awards, which recognise outstanding achievement in both the home care and care home professions.
The winners of the South West awards will be announced on 17 October at a ceremony at The Passenger Shed, Bristol and of the West Midlands awards on 24 October at an event at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull. The Yorkshire and Humberside awards will take place on 31 October.
Dawn Matthews-Smith, director of complex care at Complete, said: “We have a strong track record in the Great British Care Awards and it is very pleasing to have been recognised again this year.
“At Complete, our commitment is to person-centred care and excellence in everything we do and this shines through in all our shortlisted nominations.”
