HEALTH bosses have hailed the efforts of two nurses and a volunteer who go above and beyond what is expected.

The Burnley-based NHS workers were among the 10 ‘Star Award’ winners named by East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust at its annual celebration.

Barbara Lubomski, respiratory lead for the community division, based at the St Peter’s Centre, scooped the ‘outstanding achievement’ award, having demonstrated a ‘commitment to patient-centred values and continually improving practice’.

The judges added: “Barbara is inspiring, committed and energetic with vision and drive. She works to a high level and sets, achieves and maintains high standards.”

Nadine Scott-Lindo, a neonatal intensive care nurse at Burnley General Hospital, won the clinical worker of the year award.

She was nominated for being an ‘amazing team member, building relationships with families, providing a shoulder to cry on and identifying additional support’, while the judges noted that she was ‘like a ray of sunshine’ and ‘sees herself as the assistant to the parents’.

Patricia Knight, a voluntary infant feeding co-ordinator who works alongside Nadine, won the Chairman’s Choice Award after five years of ‘empowering mums to make their own informed choices’.

Kevin Moynes, interim director of human resources and organisational development, said: “All the staff who were nominated and won an award play a part in looking after people at their most vulnerable time of their lives and I salute them for their care, commitment and compassion. These awards are recognition of their work and dedication and they should be very proud of themselves.”

With more than 200 nominations for 161 individuals and teams from staff and patients, the short list was decided by external judges from suppliers, consultancy, training and patient organisations.

Well done, we used to have many nurses like this lady, they were forced out through bad management, It is also notable she has an east European name, It does seem nurses from other countries still have the people skills and compassion that was the hallmark of being a good nurse. people first, systems second.
