Gateway’s staff are best in the business
A Renfrew disability support service has swept the boards at an NHS awards ceremony.
The Gateway Intensive Support Service scooped the local overall prize at this year’s NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Chairman’s Awards.
Gateway is a service that offers a therapeutic environment for individuals with autism and complex learning disabilities.
It works with a variety of communitybased inclusive projects that are suitable for the needs of service users, enabling the team to teach new skills ,such as woodwork, sewing and music.
The project works to promote greater independence and life skills for each individual in a safe and therapeutic environment that supports learning and reduces anxiety.
They also identify and set clear aims and positive outcomes for each individual by working in partnership with service users, carers and other agencies.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde chairman John Brown said:“2018 had been a tremendous year of celebration marking the 70th anniversary of the NHS.
“Once again this year we were overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries across the range of categories and examples of our staff going above and beyond for patients and other colleagues.
“These awards are about us showcasing the true quality of our workforce.”
