National award for Alison

Company news

A housekeeping supervisor working at a Bristol NHS treatment centre has beaten off competition from across the country to claim a national award.

Alison Perry works at Emersons Green NHS Treatment Centre in The Brooms, Emerson Green. It is run by independent sector health and social care provider Care UK. Alison was awarded the Unsung Hero Award at the organisation’s 2014 Health Care Awards.

Jim Easton, Managing Director of Care UK’s Health Care division, said: “These annual awards are designed to recognise those colleagues who go that extra mile in some shape or form to make the patient experience more enjoyable and rewarding. I would like to congratulate Alison on winning this award as the competition from across the country was very high.

“Alison is a shining example of someone who is extremely hardworking and who takes pride in everything she and the team does. Sometimes the housekeeping team can be taken for granted and we feel it is important to recognise unsung heroes in non-clinical roles. Alison certainly fits the bill.”

Alison said: “I’m absolutely stunned to have received this award. I am absolutely speechless but appreciate so many people voting for me.”

Care UK provides more than 50 primary care services including GP and walk-in services, NHS 111, out-of-hours, diagnostics centres, clinical assessment and treatment services and prison health services. It also runs 10 hospitals that specialise in elective, planned surgery.
