We are delighted to have been ‘Highly Commended’ by the panel of judges in the NR Times 2023 awards. The award for Innovation in Neuro-Rehab was hotly contested with nine organisations being shortlisted. They were recognised for their willingness to embrace innovation and embed forward-thinking and often sector-leading practices into their service, for the benefit of patients and families.
The judging panel comprised John Davis – a nationally-renowned neurotrauma specialist lawyer, Vicki Gilman – Chair of BABICM, Luke Griggs, Chief Executive of Headway and Chloe Hayward, Executive Director of UKABIF.
They judged Richardson Care to be ‘Highly Commended’ due to our wholly person-centred and holistic approach to neuro-rehab, which is supported by psychological therapies and interventions.
According to Deborah Johnson, editor of NR Times, “NR Times awards shine a light on those whose efforts and achievements often go under the radar.” She says: “We are privileged in our roles at NR Times to interview survivors, professionals, fundraisers, volunteers and so many more people who determination and commitment leaves us amazed.”
She adds: “Outstanding dedication and the highest standards of neuro-rehab provision can truly change lives – and we wanted to recognise those who really are delivering this, those whose innovation and commitment are creating a more positive future.”
The Innovation in Neuro-Rehab award was won by The Children’s Trust, which was deemed to be particularly innovative in the creation of its Community Rehabilitation Service that will support children and families after head injury.
We would like to thank all of our care staff, therapists and the whole team who work hard to provide the best care and outcomes for our service users that we can.
