LLANDYSUL surgery practice manager Ann Johnson is the first ever winner of Carmarthenshire’s Caring Boss gold award.
Carers operating out of the surgery heaped glowing praise on Ann for being a “wonderful caring manager” leading to her collecting her trophy at a celebratory carers’ workshops day at The Plough, Rhosmaen.
The event was jointly organised by Carmarthenshire council’s Department of Communities and Crossroads Care Carers Trust.
One carer explained how, when her mother was admitted to hospital 200 miles away for 17 weeks, Ann stepped in to help cover shifts like a golden guardian angel. “I was told ‘Just go and do what you have to do’. she said. “Having such a caring and understanding boss was genuinely such a tremendous help at a traumatic period.
“I cannot personally say thank you enough for the support I received and these awards are a wonderful platform for me to say so publicly.”
