Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

A Northern Ireland man is undertaking a 1,500 mile trek he’s entitled the ‘Long Walk Home’ in memory his mum.
Eamonn Donnelly’s mum lived with dementia, and Eamonn wants to do all he can to raise money to help fight the disease.
Eamonn said: “Several years ago mum passed away after suffering from a rare and aggressive form of dementia. There were many sad moments during mum’s illness and there have been many sad moments since her death. But we can deal with the sadness and grief as we are a strong family and support each other.
“One feeling though stands out as particularly frustrating, the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness – that nothing could be done to alleviate the symptoms or slow down the progression of the disease, let alone cure it…nothing.
“I believe strongly that this needs to change and more needs to be done to find answers to even the most fundamental questions surrounding this disease. The Long Walk Home is a very small step along the way to doing just that, while also honouring the life of an amazing woman.”
Eamonn is completing the trek with friend Sepp, which will see them travel through Hitzendorf in Austria, Germany, France, England and Wales before arriving in Northern Ireland.
Eamonn’s sister Patricia works at Dunlarg Care Home in County Armagh, and the home is gearing up to welcoming the gentleman back onto Northern Irish soil.
Pat Graham, Home Manager, said: “We’re all looking forward to seeing the guys when they arrive here in September. We’re going to hold a big party/fundraiser in their honour. Good luck guys”
The money raised will go towards supporting dementia research including supporting the work of the Alzheimer’s Society.
To get involved in the party in September contact Dunlarg Care Home on 028 3753 0858.
