Ian Murray, MP for Edinburgh South and Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland has visited Gilmerton Neurological Care Centre to present the team with a Community Heroes Award.
The award has been given to recognise the team for going above and beyond during the pandemic following nominations from residents’ family members who were particularly impressed with the way the team have kept residents safe and maintained excellent communication with relatives during lockdown.
Mr Murray, said: “Over the course of the pandemic many groups and individuals have gone above and beyond for their local community. Whilst the pandemic has been brutally hard for everyone it has also brought out the best in us and rekindled a community spirit. I think it is important these heroes are given the recognition they deserve and The Community Heroes Award will draw attention to the many selfless acts by people all across the constituency.”
Gilmerton’s Centre Manager, Victoria, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for this award and I am so proud of the entire team here who have worked so hard to provide extraordinary care during such a challenging time. Our commitment to finding new ways to ensure our residents and their loved ones have stayed connected over the past year and providing meaningful activities are just some of the ways we put our residents' happiness and health at the heart of everything we do.”
Gilmerton Neurological Care Centre is located in Moredun, Edinburgh and provides care for people living with neurological conditions and brain injuries, offering rehabilitation and therapy programmes to help residents lead fulfilling lives.
