The managing director of an Alnwick-based nursing/care recruitment agency has spoken of her delight after coming second in a prestigious competition, admitting the result exceeded her expectations.

Tracy Surtees, who launched Great Britannia Care in October 2012, was named as a joint runner-up in the Care Employer Award category of the The Regional Great British Care Awards.

Reflecting on the second-placed finish, she said: “I am super pleased with the result, it was well above my expectations.

“Hopefully the recognition shall attain us more exposure, to enable us to recruit further community teams throughout the North East.

“Being a small, family-run business, we were honoured and ecstatic to be nominated and especially grateful to be short-listed and through to the finals, from thousands of competitors.”
