Last night was amazing.

The organisers of the East of England NHS Recognition Awards did themselves proud and put on a spectacular evening. The food was good and the entertainment was even better. But best of all being surrounded by so many lovely inspirational people  I couldn’t have been happier sitting back alongside my Step2 colleagues and some other members of our trust. I felt so honoured to have been nominated for the Inspirational Leader award. Out of a total of 34 nominations, four of us had been short listed. Sadly tonight the big one got away but I felt no less a winner. I had come home and for those few hours Myeloma took a back seat. Staff at Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust look after and care for each other and this in turn transfers down to excellent patient care. We are a big organisation so it’s not all perfect and there are always areas for improvement but I think the staff can feel extremely proud of themselves. Step2 couldn’t have made me feel prouder and although the team have had an number of personal traumas to deal with this year, they have stuck together and supported each other through some very difficult times.
Some lovely memories were made.


This morning it’s back to reality and unfortunately I have been recalled, so it’s another trip down to London again today. One of my blood results are showing something it shouldn’t so who knows what they have planned to do with me next but I know I will be in good hands.
