Adult Learning Disability Services

Winner:

Atlas House

Modern matron Muniru Azeez and the team at Atlas House provide a specialist inpatient service - caring for adults with learning disabilities who also have complex challenging behaviour and mental health needs.

One nomination praises the work of the whole team saying that, ‘though often faced with challenging situations, staff continue to offer the same compassion, respect and care, with smiles on their faces’. The commitment of colleagues to never hesitate to support each other or stay behind after their shift to support colleagues and patients is highlighted.

They also ‘involve families every step of the way so they feel confident in the care their loved ones receive’.
