Just a short post to say that as a patient I am so proud of Angela Graves and her team, the East Lancs Specialist Heart Failure Nursing Team. This afternoon at a Gala Dinner at the NEC in Birmingham they pulled off exactly what they deserve, winning the National Cardiac Care award. If you know this team you will understand why as they all walk around with bug “S’s” on their chests and know they don’t change in telephone boxes. It brought a slight tear to my eye when Angela phoned me to tell me. A massive well done to you all and I know all the patients will echo this. We all hope this is just the first element of your success but to be honest with you recognition is good but what you do on a day to day basis is the best and this has been recognised.
To top off the day the team also came runners up in the National Team of the Year award, but I know that Angela was gunning for the one they won.
