Health & Social Care Awards – The results!

Nominees from Services for Independent Living (SIL) enjoyed a wonderful night out hosted by the Hereford Times, to mark the first ever Health & Social Care Awards.

SIL, which was a finalist in five categories of the Awards, was delighted that two of its employees were chosen to win their category from the many nominations the judges received.

Elaine Powell, a Team Leader with SIL’s Independent Living at Home service, was chosen as the 2018 Care Hero for her unfailing hard work and drive to put the service user at the centre of everything she and her team do, while Amy Deacon, Senior Direct Payment Advisor, was given the award for her Outstanding Contribution to Social Care. Amy has worked with SIL for over 15 years and during this time she has worked tirelessly for the rights of the service user.

The Awards which covered a number of categories across the sector attracted a huge number of nominations and were judged by a panel of local health and social care representatives who were impressed by the high standard of the nominations.
