Today, two Healthcare Support Workers were surprised with national awards from the Chief Nursing Officer for NHS England, Dame Ruth May.
Amanda Pretlove and Colette Goodenough were recognised for their commitments to quality care, with feedback from relatives stating that they always feel listened to and are grateful to both incredible hard-workers for their clinical and holistic care of loved ones.
Amanda and Colette were also recognised for their warm and welcoming approach to patient care, sunny dispositions and their genuine compassion which makes so much different to patients.
The pair were presented with their certificates this morning by the Trust’s Chief Nurse, Lisa Cheek, who said: “I was delighted and proud to present Colette and Amanda with their certificates today, in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the care they provide to every patient.
“They both represent everything that the NHS stands for, and go above and beyond not only for their patients, but for the families, friends and carers of our patients too.
“I’m thrilled they have been recognised nationally for their exceptional work.”
Well done to Amanda and Colette.
