This month our congratulations go to Emma Smith of the South District Nursing Team, and who has been named our Star of the Month for October.

Nominated by Sadie Chambers, Emma has been recognised for going over and above for a patient as they reached a position where they required end of life care. Emma’s nomination read:

“The family of a palliative patient asked me to pass on their huge thanks to Emma for everything she did for their relative. They said that their experience of the end of the patient’s life was made so much easier because they had us as a team, but in particular, they mentioned Emma, who spent a lot of time and effort ensuring everything was in place for the patient at the end of life. They said Emma was really great with the patient and was so helpful with sorting things out for them. Patient died peacefully with everything in place – one chance and you got it right. Well done and thank you”

The health and wellbeing team would like to congratulate Emma and thank her for her outstanding work out in the community. Trust executives chose Sadie’s nomination to be the You’re A Star winner, with Emma recieving a voucher for a treat tray or afternoon tea for two for her win.
