Spotlight On – August Merseycare Julie Ann

Established in 2001 this year MCJA celebrated 18 years of delivering adult social care services across Merseyside. Employing over 300 social care staff MCJA are one of the biggest providers across the city region delivering services to over 850 people a week. Committed to ensuring their staff are highly skilled to deliver excellent customer service they offer staff a wide range of training in addition to mandatory training to enable them to reach their career aspirations. This also includes some specialised training in Dementia and Palliative Care.

In February MCJA received national recognition by the Westminster Parliamentary Review which is a series of documents based around individual industry sectors from a range of businesses across the country. The aim being to share knowledge and best practice in an attempt to raise standards. Representatives from MCJA were invited to London to the House of Commons to be recognised for their approach to service delivery. For more information on the Westminster Parliamentary Reviews

As a lead member organisation of the Liverpool Home Care Providers CIC, MCJA have been keen to embrace new technology designed to support the sector the organisation.  They are currently a key partner in the Liverpool 5G Testbed, which is currently trialling how 5G technology solutions can integrate with social care and were also involved in piloting the PASS system introduced to social care providers as part of the European Funded ‘Stop and Go’ programme. This has enabled MCJA to implement electronic care plans for their services, which has had a positive impact on their social care team who have access to real time information when they need it. 

In addition to providing all year round services MCJA staff also get involved in a number of social activities as well. This July the office team competed in the Race for Life at Sefton Park and also ran a cake stall which enabled them to raise over £1150 for Cancer UK. Well done team MCJA!
