New in 2020
Care Awards 2020
To re-launch the Insignia Care Awards for 2020 we will be moving the awards from Decemebr to May each year. December is a very bust time for most of us and often individuals miss out and cannot attend the awards. To celebrate the opening of Insignia House in Norwichin April 2020 we intend to double up the celebrations to combine the grand opening with the first annual care awards at the new HQ.
INSIGNIA HOUSE - 2020
Insignia Healthcare Group will be moving to our new HQ in early 2020. We are currently renovating the new building to house the new vision for Insignia's future.
Inspire Training Centre - The new location will house a purpose built training centre where all of our training courses will operate.
Insignia Lounge - A new lounge area where staff and delegates can relax and enjoy refreshments.
Further information on progress will be sent out in news letters and also in other communications.
Training is one of the most important parts of our success. As a care provider, Insignia Healthcare has consistently maintained the highest standard of training to our staff. Over 25% of our annual income is reinvested into our training programmes. Since our launch in 2010 we have expanded at an incredible rate and our staff training has always remained a priority.
In January 2012 Insignia Healthcare secured a new lease from NELM Development Trust, more than doubling the size of our current Norwich site. This has seen the site change beyond recognition throughout January. We have built a new reception area, branch office, group office, accounts office, interview room, meeting space & recruitment desk. The final phase of the refit will see our brand new Insignia Training Suite opening at the end of February 2012. The training suite will be equipped with the latest training technology, models, computers and equipment to allow our Carers to train in a real life environment.
Insignia Healthcare is currently in the process of completing on an additional lease with Morston Assets Limited to replicate our Norwich training suite at our Kings Lynn site at the beginning of March 2012. We have had some wonderful feedback from our Carers and they are looking forward to using the new facilities over the coming months.
“Being able to offer real life training to my staff has been a challenge to say the least. The new Training Suites have been 6 months in the planning and it is so exciting to finally see the models and other equipment arrive. The new facilities will certainly offer our staff the best real life training possible. The months of sourcing and researching have really paid off to ensure the products we have purchased are as realistic as possible. As a provider I am very excited to be in a position to offer this level of training to all of my staff. This is testament to the quality I strive for every day.”

New Community Matron
Insignia Healthcare Solutions are proud to welcome Rachel Banham. Rachel has been appointed as our new Community Matron. She has many years experience of community nursing and will be a great asset to Insignia Healthcare.
Insignia Healthcare Solutions are currently in discussions with Ravensfield & P&B Computers LTD to bring the two products together. Ravensfield product is a digital pen & paper that will allow our field staff to safely transmit information to the co-ordinating office within 20 seconds. The back office software will then allow us to export this information to our Patient & Booking system CARAS supplied by P&B Computers Ltd. Following several successful meetings we are hoping to introduce the new system by the end of the year.
Norwich Jobs Fair
Insignia Healthcare attended the JobSeeker Jobs Fair at The Forum in Norwich on Friday 1st July.

"Insignia Healthcare are currently undertaking a company restructure. During February we will become Insignia Healthcare Group Limited. The restructure follows the successful gain of new contracts in North West Norfolk. Insignia Healthcare Group Limited will be operated from our Head Office in Norwich along with our Norwich Branch. We are currently in the process of opening a new branch in Kings Lynn to service our new and existing contracts in the area. The restructure will see no operational changes initially, it simply means that we will be able to service Norfolk in its entirety between the new branches. We have been very successful over the past 12 months and I think this is testament to our commitment to ethical and affordable service delivered by well trained staff that sets us aside from any other provider. Our success could not have been achieved without the dedicated Care Staff & professional Branch Staff working together as a team. I would like to thank every member of my team for their hard work and dedication throughout 2010 and look forward to continuing success during our expansion in 2011."
