During the Covid-19 Pandemic Carers and Care Professionals have played a key role in supporting the most vulnerable and isolated in our communities.
This year we’re delighted to be able to give a little back by sponsoring the Special Recognition category at the LeicestershireLive Care Professional of the Year Awards.
This award is for anyone who has gone above and beyond to support others, as well as for those who deserve that little extra praise for the amazing work they do.
Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chairman of Morningside Pharmaceuticals, said: “The awards recognise and pay tribute to those within our communities for the day-to-day dedication of caring for another person.
“This year’s awards are more important than ever, as many of Leicestershire’s most vulnerable and isolated people have faced extreme hardship because of Covid-19 and the ongoing social restrictions.
“Carers have provided a huge lifeline through this crisis, often asking for nothing in return. The Special Recognition Award is a chance to thank carers who have made incredible self-sacrifices in order to ensure the lives of those they look after are more manageable.
“They really are one of many groups of unsung heroes to come out of the 2020 pandemic. I am delighted that many will receive the recognition they deserve for providing the round the clock care, which is necessary to improve another’s quality of life.
“At Morningside our mission is to make quality healthcare an affordable and accessible reality throughout the world, which resonates with the Carer of the Year Awards because we share the same desire, which is to make people’s lives happier and healthier.
“If you know of a dedicated carer, who deserves to be recognised for their selfless acts of kindness, then please nominate them for an award.
“Morningside Pharmaceuticals is proud to be able to honour those who provide unwavering care, comfort and support to make someone’s life better.”
