A nurse described as “one in a million” by a colleague has now reached the gold standard in major national awards.

Sreeja Ranjith, 36, who lives in Pentrebach, Methyr Tydfil and has been one of the team at the Greenhill Manor Care Home in Methyr for the past eight years, often spends time on her days off taking residents out for meals or on shopping trips and also brings in her young son to cheer them up.

It is this dedicated approach to her caring role that saw Sreeja take gold in the Nurse of the Year category, sponsored by Ontex UK, of the 2016 Wales Care Awards, known as the social care Oscars.

The awards, now in their 14th year, are in association with Care Forum Wales, a not-for-profit organisation set up to give independent care providers a single professional voice with which to speak on one of the most important issues of our time – how to provide better quality care for those who need it most.
