Picture of Laura Bryan, Lead Nurse, Letchmore Ward, Watford receiving her awardNomination: Laura was simply wonderful! I came in to Letchmore with Acute Pancreatitis and was in extreme pain when I arrived. After almost 2 weeks of care for a horrible pancreas infection, I was able to have my Gallbladder out. On the days Laura was on shift, I was given an extra amount of care and attention to make sure I was ok. It wasn’t just me though; Laura treated all patients in my room with the same care and understanding. She is such a lovely soul and her personality shone through and made everyone in the room happier.

I was in the uncomfortable situation of being in Hospital here, in the UK, while my mother became very ill and was in hospital in Canada. Sadly, after just one day, my mother passed away. All I wanted to do was hide and cry and I felt like Laura was there as a friend. She knew what I was going through, she was there for me to talk to and she was able to put me at ease.

I felt I needed to nominate Laura as she has left me with such an amazing opinion of Watford General and the NHS. Laura stood out to me and should be recognised for the fantastic person, carer and nurse that she is.
