ENS wins big at the Essex Care Sector Awards!

Posted: 18th December 2019

Our Care and Support team are over the moon after winning big at the prestigious Essex Care Sector Awards evening last month. We managed to scoop up not one, but two amazing awards on the night!

Our star Support Worker, Michelle Hogan, won the ‘Outstanding Support Worker’ award for her incredible work supporting people in the local community. What’s more, our Care & Support team were highly commended in the ‘Best Innovation in Care’ category for their work with the Dialysis Unit at a local NHS hospital on their dialysis buddy scheme.

Sally Jones, our Care & Support Registered Manager, said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised by Essex County Council in this year’s Essex Care Sector Awards. Michelle is a brilliant Support Worker who makes a huge difference to the lives of the people she supports. She is a very worthy winner.”

Sally continues: “I’m incredibly proud of my team for their hard work on the dialysis buddy scheme too, it’s fantastic that we were highly commended in the ‘Best Innovation in Care’ category.”
We worked alongside a local NHS hospital to pioneer this new dialysis scheme, by supplying trained support staff as dialysis buddies for patients who required Haemodialysis at home.

Our Care & Support service provides a range of complex health care services as well as helping people to access the community and remain safe in their own home.

What people are saying about ENS

ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.

We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers.  With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint.  One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school. 
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.

My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the hard work and support you have offered our Foyer and Parent and Child Scheme in managing the placement of temporary staff.
We appreciate the level of consistency and continuity your staff have bought to the schemes and would not hesitate in recommending the services of ENS Recruitment.
