Best kept city health facilities

Staff and service users at three facilities in the Newry area have been congratulated by the Health Minister Edwin Poots after winning 2011 SuperValu Best Kept Health and Social Care Facility Awards. Apple Tree Dental Care was named the Best Kept Health Facility in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust Region, while Windsor Day Centre Newry came runner up in the Day Care Category and Cloughreagh House Bessbrook was named runner up in the Residential section of the awards. The Minister was attending the presentation of the 2011 SuperValu Best Kept Health and Social Care Facility Awards when he praised the winning facilities for their dedication to the well-being of service users and staff. Almost 100 health and social care premises across Northern Ireland entered the awards scheme this year and the NIAC judges have been visiting the facilities since June to find the best kept medical practices, day care centres, clinics and residential homes. Winners were judged in three categories – Best Kept Day Care Facilities, Best Dept Residential Facilities and Best Kept Healthcare Facilities. NIAC judges inspected facilities for general tidiness, cleanliness and environmental enhancement.
