Congratulations to Sian Richardson and Angela Duggan, who have been promoted within the Admissions and Referrals team. Sian has been promoted to Admissions and Referrals Manager and Angela is now a Senior Admissions and Referrals Co-ordinator, which is due to her success in the role after only 12 months. Former Manager Louise Pittam has moved onto pastures new, while Admissions and Referrals Co-ordinator Diane Baker has decided to take some time out to go travelling. We wish them both well for the future and will be recruiting new members of the team.
William (Bill) Henry is one of our team of Admission and Referrals Co-ordinators (based at The Mews), and has been with us since April 2012. His role in a nutshell is to contact and liase with specialists who are in a position to refer Service Users to RPC. He is our top networker and attends exhibitions; open days; conferences; seminars; and visits workplaces in an effort to ensure that as many organisations as possible know about RPC and what we do. He also arranges for visits to our 5 homes for interested parties and introduces them to our staff and assess our work/care practices.
Bill’s best quality is that he has the special gift of talking to people and engaging with them – which is why he is our top man for going out and communicating directly with people about RPC.
His favourite part of working for RPC is all about trying to do the right thing for people – helping the Service Users and their families have access to the best possible environment for their needs. Bill was really kind and said to me personally that he’s found that everyone at RPC has gone out of their way to be helpful since he started working here and he loves that there’s an excellent team spirit and a positive “can do” attitude. He values that everything is done with the Service User’s requirements at heart.
Bill enjoys cooking and entertaining at weekends…which has led to an interest in wine which he admittedly uses as an excuse to travel and try to learn different languages and have an occasional glass on the way! His love of cooking even got him a spot of stardom – he took part in Northampton’s version of “Come Dine With Me”…and won it!
If you would like to chat to Bill about his role, or would like a tour of any of our facilitates please contact him on 01604 791 266 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
