Presented on Saturday 26 February, the Award recognises the quality, expertise and dedication of our entire Sale Gardens team.

I'm really proud of our whole team, especially during these challenging and unexpected times due to Covid-19. It was wonderful surprise to be recognised as an employer of choice and we’re delighted to share this success with the Opal HealthCare Community
