Some of the team at Tabley House celebrating their award

We are proud to share that Tabley House Nursing Home’s fantastic deputy manager, Rachel Burke, has scooped an award this month for the compassion she demonstrates in her job every day.

Rachel has been recognised for for her outstanding care and compassion at Cygnet’s annual nursing awards where she won the Nurse Compassionate Leader award and was recognised alongside other nurses from across Cygnet health and social care services. The Cygnet Nursing Conference and Awards took place last week at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

On receiving her award, Rachel said: “I feel very honoured to receive this award. Being compassionate is part of every-day work, I feel really emotional. Nursing and caring for people is my life, I love every day at Tabley.”

The event was hosted by David Wilmott, Cygnet’s Director of Nursing, who said: “The awards provide an opportunity for staff to nominate colleagues for the exceptional work that they do. This year we had a record number of nominations and it gives me enormous pleasure to recognise those who make outstanding contributions to the care that our service users and residents receive.”

Nominating Rachel, the team at Tabley House said: “Rachel’s compassionate management is not limited to just supporting the staff team but she equally supports the residents, their relatives, stakeholders and visiting professionals. This is evidenced in the continuous positive feedback from surveys, thank you cards and verbal praise, accumulating in a second year Top 20 award for Tabley House.

“Rachel embodies the Cygnet values of trust, integrity, empowerment, respect and care. She naturally ensures that these values form part of her daily practice; not only as a role model but in equally promoting and demonstrating these values to fellow team members.

“Rachel has worked at Tabley House for almost 10 years where she promotes positivity, inspires her team members and daily improves their overall well-being.”

Karen Johnson, Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer, Behavioural Health at Cygnet’s parent company Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) announced the finalists and winners of the awards, for which there were 529 nominations across nine awards categories.

Congratulating Rachel on her award winn, Dr Tony Romero, CEO of Cygnet, said: “Our nurses are the core, the heart of everything we do. When everybody’s at home, when everybody’s distracted, our nurses are there doing the right thing for our patients and residents.

“It is thanks to our nurses and the quality of their care that people improve and live their life as the best version of themselves.

“We owe so much to our nurses and I’m very proud of all of our nurses and award winners like Rachel.

“It has been terrific to recognise all of the talented individuals across Cygnet group and to say thank you for their dedication and compassion.”

Congratulations, Rachel!
