The Health Care Team Award

We want to hear about teams working together to deliver improved patient care. They can be from any sector but must demonstrate impact, very strong team working, strong communication, and the ability to work across organisational boundaries.

Sponsors message First City Nursing & Care are a community care organisation who provide care services across Swindon and Wiltshire. First City believe that organisations across the sector can make the greatest impact to local communities when they collaborate and work together. First City deliver a lead provider contract in Swindon and have worked to facilitate collaboration across the sector.

This cooperation has seen local care providers supporting one another in obtaining PPE and in developing closer links with colleagues in the NHS to ensure people can be supported at home wherever possible. First City are working with partners to develop a new model of community based support where people are empowered to access their communities and have control over how their goals are achieved.

First City are extremely proud to be a part of these awards and believe the selflessness, determination and courage displayed by everyone working across health and care needs to be recognised. Through working with several partner organisations to deliver and grow the community sector, we are acutely aware of the challenges these organisations have faced over the preceding months. These awards are an important way of highlighting the efforts of these organisations and everyone working in the care sector.

First City are eager to attract new entrants into the care sector and would encourage anyone who wants to work in this crucial sector to consider a career in community care.
