Congratulations to the latest winners of a DAISY Award.
Thursday 25th August 2022
These awards recognise examples of excellence for colleagues in nursing and midwifery.
Lucy Leese is a cardiovascular research nurse at the LGI. She was nominated by a patient, who said:
“I was finding my AF and anxiety extremely difficult to live with on a day-to-day basis. Out of the blue, Lucy rang me to introduce herself and explain about the diet. Lucy was bubbly and friendly and I just burst into tears. I was at a particularly low point and was having trouble reaching my usual arrhythmia nurse and Lucy's warmth and kindness made me feel so emotional I just let all my feelings out. Lucy didn't rush me and I could feel her genuine kindness and understanding of my situation. I can honestly say I don’t know if I would still be here if Lucy hadn't rang me that day.”
