The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional awards which take place throughout the UK, recognising excellence across the sector and acknowledging the hard work shown by individuals in within their field of work across 23 different award categories. 

Lisa was announced the winner of ‘The Outstanding Contribution to Social Care Award’ which is a special award presented by judges, due to Lisa’s outstanding long-term contribution to social care. 

Lisa inspires her Colleagues through her strong leadership, providing exceptional care throughout the 57 homes in the North East region of which she is responsible for.

Lisa has previously worked as a Registered Manager and a Psychiatric Nurse in the private, public and charity sectors.

Across the homes, she has six CQC ‘Outstanding’ rated homes. 

Lisa is actively involved with many initiatives across HC-One including the ‘Wellbeing Project’ and ‘Project Outstanding’ and sees this as an integral part of her job role to deliver best practice. This is evident in the amount of ‘Blue Marshmallows’ (the name given to HC-One’s innovative ideas programme) that she has put forward, including the ‘Proud File’, which is now used across all HC-One homes to evidence the outcomes and quality of life for Residents and has tangibly contributed to evidencing outstanding care across homes.
