East Cheshire Hospice has been short-listed in four categories at the North Cheshire Business Awards.
The Hospice will learn the results at a ceremony at De Vere Cranage Estate later this month.
The Hospice is in the running for Best Organisation to Work For; Excellence in Customer Service; Charity of the Year and Apprentice of the Year.
Director of Quality and Innovation Sarah Dale BEM said: “We’re convinced we have a compelling case in each category.
“We’ve cared for hundreds of patients with life-limiting illnesses during the 18 years I’ve worked here, something I highlighted in our submission.
“That excellent care is delivered by a dedicated team which includes doctors, nurses and other health care professionals such as therapists, psychological support staff and dementia specialists, plus all our business support and fundraising teams.
“We work in partnership with acute hospitals, community providers and other local organisations to deliver care unique to each person.”
Meanwhile, the Hospice is advertising for clinical staff as part of expansion which will see further community engagement in Knutsford. It needs health care assistants (band 3) and nurses (band 6).
Sarah said: “Recruitment has been difficult across the whole health care sector since the pandemic and because of well-known pay review issues within the NHS.
“It’s different working here than in the NHS because of what we provide, but there are so many jobs available that people can pick and choose. Hopefully, they choose to come and work with us.”
