First Chief Nursing Officer award for care home nurse

A Trafford care home manager has been recognised by England’s top NHS nurse as part of this year’s Chief Nursing Officer Awards – the first time a nurse in a care home setting has been recognised in the awards.

Registered nurse Martyn Davies, 36, who owns and manages Urmston Manor Residential Home, was given a ‘gold award’ after a glowing recommendation from health and social care leaders at NHS Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Trafford Council.

He was nominated for his tireless and dedicated work for care and residential home residents at Urmston Manor. Martyn has worked across the care home sector in Trafford, taking Faversham House, also in Urmston, to ‘outstanding’ status, and Urmston Manor from ‘inadequate’ to ‘outstanding’ in just 12 months.

Jacquie Coulton, chief nurse at NHS Trafford CCG, said:

“Martyn is without doubt a role model for all care home nurses, he demonstrates care, compassion, courage, competency, communication and commitment, and I am humbled to call him a colleague. Martyn is keen to support our vision of removing the barrier of marginalisation of care home nurses so that they feel as valued as our community and acute nursing colleagues.”

Martyn was presented with his certificate by Ruth May virtually during an online meeting on Friday 18 December and has also been sent a badge marking his achievement by post.

Mrs May, chief nursing officer for NHS England, said:

“Martyn has done amazing things even before Covid-19, including transforming Urmston Manor from ‘inadequate’ to ‘outstanding’ and he did it with the people he serves and the staff who support him.

“What I am most impressed by is Martyn’s nursing leadership which has ensured the residents in his care have the most wonderful experience in their home.

“He’s lived in the home since March which has helped ensure none of his residents have caught Covid-19.”
