Eileen’s a class apart

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A Wishaw-based health vis­i­tor has scooped a top hon­our at the Scot­tish Health Awards 2017.

Eileen Mulholland, a health vis­i­tor at Houldsworth Cen­tre, was awarded the pres­ti­gious Nurse Award for her work supporting chil­dren with Autis­tic Spec­trum Dis­or­der (ASD) in the area.

The Wishaw woman has been a health vis­i­tor for 12 years, and was nom­i­nated for this award due to the wide-reach­ing and sig­nif­i­cant im­pact her work has had.

Her true ded­i­ca­tion and com­pas­sion, com­bined with her spe­cial­ist ex­per­tise and knowl­edge of the con­di­tion, al­lows her to of­fer hon­est, clear ad­vice, and means she is a real as­set to NHS La­nark­shire.

Chair of NHS La­nark­shire Neena Ma­hal said:“I would like to con­grat­u­late Eileen on her fan­tas­tic award win. It’s won­der­ful for her, and the col­leagues she works with, that her com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion has seen her win such a pres­ti­gious na­tional award.

“It’s all the more special that she was nom­i­nated not only by the col­leagues who see her work first-hand, but also pa­tients and other mem­bers of the pub­lic who have ben­e­fited so much from her care. It’s a fan­tas­tic re­flec­tion on her, as well as the ex­cel­lent team­work that ex­em­pli­fies all NHS La­nark­shire staff.”

The win­ners, cho­sen by a spe­cially se­lected panel of judges, were an­nounced at a glit­ter­ing award cer­e­mony at the Corn Ex­change in Ed­in­burgh on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2.
