Representatives of the Primary Integrated Community Services (PICS) were honoured to receive the name as the region’s top employer at the Nottinghamshire Live Business Awards.
In addition, the company also celebrated its place as a finalist in the ‘Excellence of Innovation’ category, which recognised the company’s value to the local economy.The award also praises commitment to quality, enthusiasm and ‘can do’ spirit.
In 2013, PICS was set up by Dr Kelvin Lim and Alison Rounce, who are both partners at Eastwood Primary Care Centre, to deliver respiratory services to patients.Since then, the health care team has grown to nearly 400 staff who provide a variety of community and out of hospital services across Nottinghamshire.

Dr Kelvin Lim, medical director of PICS and Alison Rounce, managing director of PICS, welcomed the award and said: “We are very proud that we have been recognised as Employer of the Year at the Notts Live Business Awards 2020 and 2021.
“We dedicate this award to our staff, alongside all health and social care workers, who have worked tirelessly to provide the best care to our residents."
