Hon­our for kind Hay­ley

‘Com­mit­ment and pas­sion’

West Lothian Courier - - News - Deb­bie Hall

One of Scot­land’s most ded­i­cated health care pro­fes­sion­als has had her con­tri­bu­tion to the field recog­nised at the an­nual Scot­tish Health Awards 2018.

Hay­ley Nis­bet, is a pae­di­atric on­col­ogy out­reach sup­port worker at the Royal Hos­pi­tal for Sick Chil­dren in Ed­in­burgh and has been awarded the Sup­port Worker Award for her com­mit­ment and pas­sion to her job and pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent NHS non- clin­i­cal sup­port ser­vices for peo­ple in Scot­land.

Hav­ing worked in the role for eight months, Hay­ley has been recog­nised for the care and sup­port she has pro­vided to pa­tients and fam­i­lies dur­ing dif­fi­cult times.

One per­son who nom­i­nated her said: “Ha­ley joined our team eight months ago but we strug­gle to imag­ine how we sur­vived as a team with­out her.

“She puts her whole heart into her work. She visits pa­tients who do not want to come to hos­pi­tal and she be­comes part of the fam­ily - ac­tive in mem­ory mak­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and sib­ling sup­port.”

Hay­ley, who is orig­i­nally from Whit­burn and now lives in Harthill, picked up her award on an evening where the achieve­ments of NHS staff, sup­port work­ers, vol­un­teers and spe­cial­ist teams from across Scot­land were cel­e­brated through 17 di­verse cat­e­gories.

The awards recog­nise their sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion, hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to the de­liv­ery of high qual­ity health care through­out Scot­land and are run by the Daily Record and in part­ner­ship with NHSS­cot­land and the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment.

David Dick, ed­i­tor of the Daily Record and Sun­day Mail, said: “Ev­ery year across Scot­land, thou­sands of health­care pro­fes­sion­als and vol­un­teers ded­i­cate their lives to pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble care to the peo­ple of Scot­land.

“Our Scot­tish Health Awards once again pro­vided us with a chance to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the hard work and com­mit­ment of the teams and in­di­vid­u­als, whose con­tri­bu­tion often goes un­recog­nised.”

The 17th an­nual Scot­tish Health Awards 2018, the most pres­ti­gious awards cer­e­mony for pro­fes­sion­als across NHSS­cot­land and their part­ners, were hosted by top co­me­dian Fred Ma­cAulay, and were held on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 1 at the Ed­in­burgh Corn Ex­change.
