CHARD business Orchard Osteopaths has returned victorious after a national awards ceremony, which saw them pick up three trophies.

The Institute of Osteopathy Awards was held at the end of November at the Beaumont Estate in Windsor, and Orchard Osteopaths were invited along after reaching the finals in three categories, including Practice of the Year, Principal of the Year and Rising Star.

Orchard’s Rachel Phillimore picked up Principal of the Year at the ceremony. The judges were looking for practice principals who were committed to developing their associates and staff whilst offering the best possible treatment to patients.

Awards were given to principals that have introduced innovative ways to run their practices, work with allied health professions and local communities and promote osteopathy, as well as developing their own businesses.

Cheryl Crook, an associate osteopath, was awarded with the Rising Star Award for new osteopaths that have already demonstrated a passion for osteopathic practice, combined with outstanding academic achievement, clinical skill and patient care.

Orchard Osteopaths was also named runner-up in Practice of the Year category.

Rachel said: “It was such an honour and achievement to win these awards, I am very proud of my clinic and all the team that work so hard to provide the best care for our patients and customers.

“Bringing home the awards is an incredible way of celebrating my 25 years in practice.”
