The team on Brent ward are simply amazing. “I have never met people as caring and considerate as these nurses and healthcare assistants. Nothing is ever too much for them.

“They are brilliant at putting patients first, they manage their work load well, and do not complain. Every day they have to take on a lot emotionally, due to the nature of the ward and they always make sure that they check in on one another which is very important.”

“We turned up to A&E on Monday 27th May expecting to be told my symptoms were normal for 18 weeks of pregnancy and to go home and rest. What actually happened over the next few hours is now a bit of a blur! I was in labour; an infection in my amniotic fluid meant our baby, who still had a heartbeat at this point, would be delivered.

“We honestly could not have got through without the team on Meavy ward. We honestly aren’t sure how to thank them enough and believe this award may go some way in recognizing how wonderful a job the team up there do.”
