Nursing Times Award win for bowel care team

30 Oct 2014 - Press Release

A nursing team at Stepping Hill Hospital has won a top national award in recognition of their support for patients.  

The hospital’s bowel care team won the ‘Continence care and promotion’ category at this year’s Nursing Times Awards.

They were recognised for their outstanding work in promoting the care of people who have suffered from a spinal cord injury and who have continence problems as a result.

The team trained senior nurses who in turn trained other nurses across the hospital to ensure that these patients’ received the highest quality care.

Director of Nursing Judith Morris said, “The team has given a huge amount of time and effort into making sure the hospital’s nursing staff are more prepared than ever to provide these vulnerable patients with the best possible dignity in care.  I am  absolutely thrilled that their efforts have been recognised at the Nursing Times Awards; they truly deserve it.”  

The Nursing Times Awards are dedicated to celebrating the very best in nursing care and innovation across the country. The bowel care team was shortlisted with just seven other teams in the country for the award.
