Sharon Winfield takes home Healthcare Hero Award 2020

We are delighted to announce that Avery’s Chief Operating Officer, Sharon Winfield, has been recognised for her continuous hard work, particularly throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and has received a Healthcare Hero Award, presented by Knight Frank.

The coronavirus pandemic has been both a challenging and emotional journey for all operators, and all too often in the early days, care home providers were left to develop our own guidance to support staff and protect our residents. We were fortunate to be led during this challenging period by Sharon; she has been inspirational in leading the operations team through this pandemic, developing, and leading a Covid-19 Strategy Group within the company. Sharon said, “Everything we do in Avery is a team effort and what a great team we have!”

The awards, presented by Knight Frank, honour those working in the care sector who have gone above and beyond throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Julian Evans, Head of Healthcare at Knight Frank, commented, “We are thrilled to acknowledge the amazing people that work within the social care sector, this year more than ever.
