Nurses shortlisted for national award

Two nurses from Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have reached the final of a prestigious national award.

Adam Hayward, practice development matron – dementia, and Shantell Miles, practice development matron, have both been shortlisted in the Nursing Times Awards 2014.

They have been recognised in the Enhancing Patient Dignity category for their work to improve the care provided to some of the most vulnerable elderly patients across the trust.

The Enhancing Patient Support in Acute Hospital Settings project enables hospital staff to therapeutically engage with patients experiencing confusion at their bedsides.

Adam, who has worked at the Trust for nine years, said: “We are excited to be announced as finalists. This work will continue to enable ward staff to improve the way we care for our most vulnerable patients. Receiving national recognition for all the hard work is the icing on the cake.”

Adam and Shantell will find out if they are winners on 29th October, at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

Susan Bowler, executive director of nursing and quality at the trust, said: “I am proud of Adam and Shantell for reaching the final shortlist, especially as more than 700 entries were received for this year’s awards.

“Their hard work, dedication and commitment to nursing deserves to be recognised on a national stage and I wish them the best.”
