Addenbrookes Cambridge, Nurses Rewarded for going that Extra Mile

Added on 04/10/2010

Cambridgeshire based organisation Elder Protection, made a presentation on Tuesday, to 2 Nurses from Clinic 12 at Addenbrookes Hospital. The awards were in support of the Department of Health's Dignity in Care Campaign which was first launched in November 2006 with the aim of putting Dignity and Respect back in to the care services.

Elder Protection introduced the "Community Care Award" to run along side the Department of Health's Campaign so that local people could reward Care Workers, Nursing Staff and others who make a difference in ensuring we have a good experience of care when we need it, changing the culture of care services and placing a greater emphasis on improving the quality of care in NHS Hospitals, Community services, Care Homes and other Support Services.

Nurse Geraldine Masters and Nurse Theresa Basquine were both nominated for the award because of the way they treated people attending the clinic as individuals, enabling people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence and maintain confidence and a positive self-esteem.

Ed Mullenger, founder of Elder Protection who made the presentations said it was important to recognise and reward the people who make a difference by going that extra mile and both nurses deserved this recognition. Everybody can do their little bit to influence others and change the way care is delivered, if you would like to know more about the campaign or you would like to become a Dignity Champion then contact Ed or Kinga at Cambridgeshire based organisation Elder Protection, made a presentation on Tuesday, to 2 Nurses from Clinic 12 at Addenbrookes Hospital.
