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.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Lorraine Kirkpatrick, Regional Manager for Belfast who won the Regional Manager accolade.
Lorraine is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to helping people with mental health issues. Her passion for helping people stemmed from having a family member who suffered from Schizophrenia.
“All I ever wanted was for him to have a better life,” Lorraine told us. “I strongly believe that people with mental illnesses should be encouraged and enabled to live as full lives as possible. I want to do my utmost to help as many people as I can do this.”
Everyone in Northern Ireland celebrated when Lorraine won the prestigious accolade. Lorraine herself was very happy, not only for herself but for all of the teams that she works with. “It was a little bit of recognition for the teams continued respectfulness, being caring and trusting nature which ultimately makes a difference to the people in our care. Which is something I strive to do,” said Lorraine
Since winning the award, Lorraine has been busy developing Four Seasons Mental Health Framework. She’s also visited the Regional Team and homes based in the North East of England sharing best practice and assisting them with regards to the setting up and running of specialised units.
Lorraine added: “I’m not one for the limelight, so being able to go back to work and continue to help my teams and other Four Seasons colleagues to continue to make a difference to the lives of the people we care for is something that makes me very proud to work for this company.”
