The team continue their fantastic year of success by winning a prestigious award from social care and health champion Healthwatch Gateshead.

The Healthwatch Nominate a Star scheme enables patients to nominate members of the care sector who they feel have gone above and beyond in their care. The scheme is anonymous and the recipient receives a certificate to display at their place of work.

Healthwatch Gateshead is a non-profit organisation which aims to help people find out about local health and care services; listen to what local residents think of those services; and help those planning and running services understand what local residents want.

Bluebird Care Gateshead was nominated for the award by a customer for the care and compassion that was shown to them by their care assistant team. 

Katheryn Haswell, Director of Bluebird Care Gateshead, commented:

“I am incredibly proud of my team and the fact that they have been recognised for their care and compassion. It is a testament to the efforts of our outstanding team that I have the privilege to work with.

"They believe in the Bluebird Care ethos, that we should be delivering care to the very highest standards, the care that we would want for ourselves and for our own family. We are absolutely delighted to have received this award."
