TWO community nurses from south Lincolnshire have been recognised for dedication to their work.
The nurses from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) were nominated for trust Jubilee Awards after demonstrating exceptional care in the community through their compassion, positive attitude and for being role models to their colleagues.
Candice Pellett, of Bourne Galletly Practice and Angela Wilson, of Johnson Community Hospital, Spalding, picked up the accolade.
Nominations were put forward by their general managers as part of Nurses’ Day and the awards were presented as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Candice and Angela were handed their awards by Ellen Armistead, LCHS chief executive, who said: “I am delighted to have presented these awards and shine a light on our very own community diamonds as we celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
“Our nurses share Lincolnshire Community Health Services values and show putting patients first is at the heart of everything we do.”
Candice, who is Case Manager District Nurse at Bourne Galletly Practice, was nominated for her passion for patient dignity, particularly when caring for people at the end of their lives.
Angela, who is a Clinical Nurse Specialist Tissue Viability at the Johnson Community Hospital, was nominated because of her valuable contribution to the prevention of pressure ulcers in the community by supporting and teaching staff.
