Hospice is triple award finalist

John Taylor Hospice could pick up three prizes this autumn after being named a finalist in both local and national awards.

The hospice has been shortlisted in the UK Social Enterprise Awards in the Employee Engagement category for its work in promoting the wellbeing of staff. It has also been named a finalist as the Charity of the Year in the Birmingham Awards.

And CEO Penny Venables has been chosen as a finalist in the Services to Charity category of the English Women’s Awards.

All of the awards pay tribute to the work undertaken by hospice teams in caring for patients and their families and supporting colleagues.

“We are delighted that our work has been highlighted with these award nominations,” said Penny. “Our staff are dedicated to making every moment matter for our patients and their families every day and it’s always rewarding to see this dedication receiving regional and national recognition in this way.”

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
