BLUEBIRD EMPLOYEE MAKES SOCIAL CARE LEADERSHIP AWARDS FINAL

Lucy McCormack, Group Development Manager at Bluebird Care Mid and West Essex, Southend and Redbridge been nominated as a finalist for the Executive Home Care Leader Award at The Social Care Leadership Awards. 

The Executive Home Care Leader Award recognises those who have showcased excellence in senior leadership within the sector. The award comes in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, at a time where strong leadership in social care has been needed more than ever.

Bluebird Care Mid and West Essex, Southend and Redbridge provide care services in their customer’s homes. Their visits cover a variety of highly individualised care services, from personal care to companionship, home help, to trips into the community, right up to 24-hour Live-in Care.

Lucy’s nomination as a finalist comes as a result of her commitment to the Bluebird Care office’s customers, and her success in leading within the care sector. The Group Development Manager has developed and successfully delivered various initiatives with significant positive impacts on not only customers, but care teams as well.

From delivering personal protective equipment to colleagues and customers, to developing the successful ‘Live-in Care’ service to serve Bluebird Care Mid and West Essex, Southend and Redbridge throughout the pandemic, Lucy has led by example, and displayed leadership qualities that have translated into excellent care services for customers, in the comfort of their own homes.

Led by Cecilia Anim, the former President of The Royal College of Nursing, a panel of independent judges will now choose a winner from the finalists. A Gala Awards event on 27th October at London’s Hilton Bankside Hotel will host the finalists, and reveal the winner of The Social Care Leadership Awards’ prestigious prize.

Lucy McCormack, Group Development Manager at Bluebird Care Mid and West Essex, Southend and Redbridge, said: “Few people in the care sector set out with the ambition of award recognition for our efforts. Our primary concerns are instead focused on help and supporting others. Nevertheless, I certainly welcome the acknowledgement and reward of being shortlisted for a prestigious category by The Social Care Leadership Awards, because it means I am doing a good job.

“Leadership is an important part of being in a care team, and one I have focussed a lot of my time and efforts in developing in. I look forward to continuing to do so, to the benefit of our brilliant customers.”

Sharon Wuyts, a colleague of Lucy’s at Bluebird Care Mid and West Essex, Southend and Redbridge, added: “Lucy is a very inspirational and motivating leader who is approachable, compassionate and sincere. She strives to enhance the performance of each office demonstrating a positive working culture, where individuals are valued and encouraged to share their ideas. Her 'can-do' attitude inspires all those around her.”
