Healthcare Domestics/Cleaners are on the frontline in the battle against COVID and other such threats, as their duty to ensure areas are clean and infections are controlled was heightened as the pandemic took hold and the quality of their work came under constant pressure and spotlight scrutiny – but the time has come to shine a different spotlight on these unsung heroes, for much more joyous reasons; an awards celebrating the great, often strenuous work they do to keep the public safe.
Everybody deserves their day to be praised and appreciated and the unsung heroes of the NHS such as non-clinical staff like Porters and Healthcare Domestics/Cleaners are no different – that is the belief of GV Healthcare, creators of task management solutions which help these very people, who have this month launched The National MyCleaning Awards – in association with NHSE.
GV Healthcare launched their successful MyPorter Awards two years’ ago which has shone a spotlight on the great work portering teams do across the country – raising the profile of portering as a whole, and now they’re looking to do the same with cleaning. The National MyPorter Awards will also relaunch this October, again in association with NHSE. Both the cleaning awards and the portering awards are open to any relevant team member within the UK & Ireland and will see separate live awards events take place in London in late February. Categories for The National MyCleaning Awards include: Domestic of The Year (MyCleaning Award), Lifetime Achievement, Healthcare Cleaning Team of The Year, Leadership of The Year, Newcomer of The Year and Auditor of The Year (MyAudit Award). The awards will be judged by members of NHSE including Emma Brookes, Head of Soft FM Strategy and Operation and Philip Shelley, Senior Operational & Policy Manager Soft FM.
Estates and Facilities teams are being encouraged to send in their nominations and help celebrate those deserving of extra praise.
