CRG Round Up – 19.07.19

Branch Manager, Sue Noon and Regional Recruitment Business Partner, Amy Dissanayaka attended the Dignity in Care Awards last week as Sue Noon was nominated for the Leadership Award!

The event was organised by the Care Market Development Team via Staffordshire County Council.

The Hammersmith team recently received this amazing feedback from a service user: “I would just like to say that Olu who has been standing in for my usual carer who is on holiday has been exceptionally good. She is thorough and very obliging and pleasant. My usual carer Craig also goes out of his way to do a good job. Both of them make a great improvement to my quality of life.”

Marketing Manager, Hannah West, Graphic Designer, Jack Turner and Head of Mobilisation & Resourcing, John Townley have been out in Burnley this week filming for an upcoming project.

We would like to wish Quality Assurance Assistant, Hannah Lowe the best of luck in the future as she leaves the CRG Homecare quality team today.

Last week an emergency incident occurred requiring the immediate intervention of the CRG Custody Nurse on duty in Weymouth Police Custody Suite, Dorset. HCP Ginette Coelho was called to the holding cells to a detainee who had collapsed. When Ginette got to the detainee, she was awake in the recovery position. Ginette knew something wasn’t right and requested an ambulance to attend.

Whilst communicating with the detainee carrying her assessment out, the detainee stopped breathing and had no pulse. Cardiac arrest was confirmed, CPR commenced and was successful; the detainee recovered by the time the ambulance arrived.

Clinical Lead, Liz James commended Ginette’s actions, ‘Yet another great example of effective skills and team work within the Dorset contract. Well done Ginette, you saved this detainee’s life and should be proud in doing so. You are a valuable member of the Dorset team and a credit to CRG’.

CRG Medical Services is about to offer a rare opportunity to suitable doctors to train as a Forensic Medical Examiner and work for CRG Medical Services. The training will be provided by experts in the field, the course duration will consist of 4 separate days delivering modules of training commencing in August and October. All trainees will be trained in an approved setting and be assigned an educational and clinical supervisor who will be a subject knowledge expert with explicit training in effective supervision responsible for supervising the trainee and establishing when the doctor is safe to practice independently.

This is a fantastic development in our continued approach to innovation and adapting our model to meet the changing needs of FME & Custody Healthcare. If any staff members know of any doctors who would be interested in this opportunity and want to find out more, please encourage them to contact Med Team (
