District Nurses given Amazing Care award by people of Lancashire!

Posted on the 25th March 2019

A District Nursing Team with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust has received an award for providing Amazing Care at the Trust’s annual Staff Awards ceremony held on Friday 22 March.

The Longridge District Nursing Team were crowned the winners of the Amazing Care Award 2019, which was nominated and voted for by members of the public. The team received the award for their work in providing a first class nursing service and outstanding end of life care for an elderly patient out in the community. The team were recognised for their compassion and responsiveness and for the support they provided to the family during a difficult time.

Sarah Marquis, Team Manager for the Longridge District Nurses at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“We are so proud to have received the Amazing Care Award 2019 and more importantly to have been recognised as a caring, compassionate and dedicated District Nursing Team. Receiving this award means so much to the team and it also provides recognition for every District Nurse in the country and the work we do for end of life care patients.

“District nurses are the cornerstone of preventing hospital admissions and we are so pleased that the profession has been acknowledged for its hard work. We had such a fantastic evening celebrating all of the achievements and look forward to next year’s event!”

Over 340 members of heath care staff gathered to recognise their achievements at the Trust’s 10th annual Staff Awards ceremony held last week in Blackpool. The event provides an opportunity for staff to cheer on their colleagues who had been nominated for one of 11 categories.

The event was held at The Village Hotel, Blackpool and was sponsored by Carefoot, Cube, Cygnet Healthcare and Oak Group. To view the images from the night please visit www.flickr.com/photos/lancashirecare/albums/72157677381971677.
