  • Karen Slater, Prize winner for Technician of the year at BAPO 2018

Peacocks Technician Karen Slater has been recognised by BAPO for the high standard of her work, and will be awarded a prize at their annual conference next month.

The award, which is sponsored by Algeos is for Technician of the year. Individuals are nominated by their peers in recognition of their outstanding work over the previous 12 months, and the nominations are then assessed by a panel at BAPO. Karen was nominated by Peacocks Orthotist Gary Carden, who said

“Karen goes out of her way to help orthotists and technicians to achieve a high quality of AFO’s and to develop and improve the standards of product we provide… with junior orthotists and technicians she works with them so that everyone is providing the best service”

The judging panel met earlier this month, and BAPO Technician chair Ian Adam said:

“The judging panel were once again delighted at the very high standard of nominations and they are delighted to see the unsung heros of orthotics and prosthetics being recognized for the hard work and devotion they put into their patients and the devices they receive.”

Peacocks would also like to add our congratulations to Karen and the other award winners who will receive their prizes at the BAPO annual conference on Friday 16th March.
