Nominated by a colleague for the empathy and professionalism they showed in supporting a challenging patient in his end of life care.
The patient was determined to take charge of his own destiny and, while some of his wishes may not have been what the team would have chosen, they had him at the heart of everything they did. They listened to his wishes and did their absolute utmost to meet them. The team supported him for more than five weeks with at least eight staff a day visiting to support him in his own home.
Through their incredible combined efforts on every level they were able to give this patient the end of life he wished for, and he passed away peacefully without any medications at the end which is what he wanted.
