Practice Manager Award

We are delighted to report that our two Practice managers at Hathaway Kim Hiles and Karen Manders have received a Hidden Heroes award for Outstanding Performance during the Pandemic.  The Hidden Heroes initiative was established to identify some of the excellent individuals and teams who would otherwise go without recognition, as well as try to highlight this incredible work that too often goes unnoticed.

Amanda Houston who nominated the winners said ‘Kim and Karen were a real driving force behind the covid vaccination clinics. They work tirelessly and quietly in the background taking no praise for what they do. They are some of the real heroes’.

The ladies received their awards on the 30th of September

The awards were established by four Companies who are playing a key role in Supporting General Practice with the pandemic: Dene Healthcare, Gama Healthcare, Interface Clinical Services and Practice Index.  Matt Taylor of Dene Healthcare who presented the award was quoted as saying: ‘2020 was a hard year for most and sadly the amazing work being done in General Practice is too often overlooked, Karen and Kim are exactly the type of individuals we were hoping to identify and in some small way thank them for their contribution during the most difficult period in modern times.
