A NURSE has been recognised as a ‘Care UK Hero’ for her work during the coronavirus pandemic.

Dot Pye was the relief manager at Millers Grange in Witney, and was praised for her dedication and kindness.

She said: “Everyone at Millers Grange has worked tirelessly over the past few months and I couldn’t be prouder to have been part of this care home family.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to the entire Millers Grange team, who are all my heroes.

“Each day, they astounded me with their kindness and positivity, and I wouldn’t have won this award without their hard work and support.”

Described as a ‘friend to everyone’, Ms Pye left Millers Grange in July to join another Care UK home.

Simon Porter, regional director for Care UK, said: “We are incredibly grateful for Dot’s hard work, and the commitment she has shown was second to none from the day she arrived at Millers Grange.

“Whether she was helping in the office, lending a listening ear for team members or learning how to roller set hair, her dedication and hardworking nature has been appreciated by us all.”
