Chief Executive's Award

Congratulations to the Overnight Nursing Service, West Area.

Our Chief Executive, Siobhan Melia said:It is a great privilege to ask the Overnight Nursing Service to come up and collect this award.

When we talk about unsung heroes, I can’t think of a better example than the Overnight Nursing Service.

They quietly and effectively go about providing urgent nursing care to patients at home – when the vast majority of the public is relaxing at home.

The Overnight Nursing Service works with a wide range of partners and deal with some highly complex cases, looking after some very vulnerable people.

I would like to share with you a message from the wife of a patient, which I think sums up perfectly how amazing this team really is.

"I would like to extend my thanks to the excellent night nurses who supported my husband following a short illness.

“They were always cheerful and professional, very kind and compassionate, and I know they made my husband and I feel supported in the last few weeks of his life, when he needed you.

“He was able to remain at home which is what he wanted and I can’t thank you all enough for making this happen. You are angels, and I will always remember you all for your kindness, even at the ghastly hours you attended in the freezing cold! Thank you."

On behalf of everyone at the Trust – thank you.”
