She has spent her career learning and supports the nursing team as well as mentoring others. We would love to have a cup of tea with her and thought she had high standards and was a great ambassador for care, engaging with relatives and learning all about her residents.”
A delighted Mary said: "It’s a great privilege for me to be nominated for this award for doing a job that I love so much, and to go on to win it. I feel so proud for the team I work with; I didn’t do this alone.
