Celebrating Excellence Staff Award

Award winners

October 2017

Winner: Dian Chambers

Nominated by: Relative


In February, Dian and her colleague Jo Sparrow had the hard job of delivering the news to me and my husband that I had bowel cancer aged 39. Dian was kind, patient and sensitive throughout. I subsequently moved trusts in order to have treatment closer to home so never met her again.

Today, six months later, I received a call from Dian who said she'd been thinking of me and wanted to know how I was doing. I find this act of kindness very moving.
