Lisa Stone, Service Manager at North & South Dales and High Peak Older Adults CMHT nominated Beverly Taylor, a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) to be Dignity Champion of the month. She said:
"Bev has faced many personal tragedies throughout the year but this hasn't stopped her being an excellent CPN and advocate for her patients. She is always a positive and calming influence on the team.
"Bev's manner towards both staff and patients alike is exemplary, and over the months she has blossomed in her role and is very well thought of by all that her meet her. She constantly goes above and beyond her remit.
"Bev mentors student Nurses and while some of them can have a negative view of older people initially, Bev has worked tirelessly to help change this opinion with great success."
Well done Bev - you are dignity champion of the month February 2011!
