Celebrating Excellence Staff Award

Award Winners

February 2017

Winner: Wendy Liberty, Diabetes specialist nurse, Watford

Nominated by: Laura Thomas, Staff

Picture of Wendy Liberty receiving the awardNomination: Wendy is an excellent diabetes specialist nurse (DSN) with lots of core knowledge and expertise. The patient care she provides is first class and the patients speak so highly of her.

I first had the opportunity of working with Wendy when I was a student nurse and on two different occasions throughout my training I remember Wendy telling me that one day I should consider becoming a DSN. In August 2014 I was given this opportunity and ever since Wendy has been there to help, support, teach and guide me through my DSN role.

Wendy is due to retire in May after working for the trust for many years and I would love for all her hard work, support and outstanding patient care to be recognised. She is a great asset not only to the diabetes team but to the trust and she will be deeply missed when she leaves. I wanted to nominate her for this staff excellence award on behalf of the diabetes MDT and of course her patients.

Thank you Wendy for your support. You have been an inspiration not only to your patients but to your colleagues and I personally will miss your stories and reflective experiences which in turn have influenced my own skills and knowledge.
