Hospice nurse recognised with special award

A STAFF nurse at the Earl Mountbatten Hospice has been given a special award for going the extra mile in caring for patients.

Tina Boyd was singled out for the award by colleagues who have observed her work as lead nurse at the hospice’s John Cheverton Centre (JCC).

They chose her for the accolade after also receiving positive feedback from patients.

Tina was presented with her award during a gathering at which hospital management and clinical staff came together to review progress of their five-year nursing strategy, which covers many aspects of hospice activity.

Tina said: "Patients here appreciate the care we offer at JCC but as well as providing the very best service here, we also aim to be part of the support provided to enable patients to remain independently in their own homes and continuing to live as actively as they can."

One patient, who attends day services in the JCC, said: "Tina is brilliant. She’s always got time for every single patient. She’s very caring."

Trustee Ginnie Gledhill praised the contribution of Tina and her colleagues and added that progress in implementing the nursing strategy had also been pleasing.

She said: "I was impressed by the progress the team is making on the nursing strategy. The cleverness of a strategy is to define the overall objectives and then identify practical steps towards achieving them. Staff are all working towards this in a very focussed and positive way. Well done to all the team."
