Ser­vice cham­pi­ons

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Four Marie Curie nurses from the Wishaw area have been pre­sented with long-ser­vice awards.

They were among a host of nurses given var­i­ous ac­co­lades at the most re­cent team meet­ing at Ud­ston Hos­pi­tal in Hamil­ton.

Rosina McLaugh­lan and Pamela Love, from Wishaw, Carol Thom­son, from Shotts, and Mary McCann, from Mother­well, were pre­sented with 10-year awards by Marie Young, clin­i­cal nurse man­ager for La­nark­shire and Georgia Ram­plin, com­mu­nity fundraiser at Marie Curie.

Georgia Ram­plin, com­mu­nity fundraiser, said:“I’d like to say a huge con­grat­u­la­tions to all of the nurses who re­ceived their long ser­vice awards.

“With­out their ded­i­ca­tion and hard work, we sim­ply wouldn’t be able to care for peo­ple in La­nark­shire who are liv­ing with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness.”

Marie Curie La­nark­shire con­sists of around 50 nurses who care for peo­ple liv­ing with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness and their fam­i­lies from 10pm-7am in their own homes.

Last year in La­nark­shire, they pro­vided over 2500 vis­its to peo­ple liv­ing with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness. If you have ques­tions about ter­mi­nal ill­ness, need sup­port or just want to talk, call the Marie Curie Sup­port Line on 0800 090 2309.

It’s for any­one af­fected by ter­mi­nal ill­ness, in­clud­ing fam­ily and friends.
