Our MioCare Staff Awards 2020 nominees and winners were celebrated in socially distanced style on Thursday 1st October! Well done to all involved and thank you to everyone who participated.
We're sad we couldn't party like it's 2019 but still so inspired to reflect on the great work happening in our services across Oldham.
A HUGE well done to all those that were nominated this year and thank you to those that sent in the nominations – no awards at all without you!
