Death can be a difficult subject, and people often shy away from talking about it, but this is something that Susan is working to change. For over 20 years, Susan has volunteered her free time to the Natural Death Centre| charity, of which she is a Trustee.
The charity aims to inform and educate the public about choices available to them and their carers, and offers free, impartial advice on all aspects of death and dying.
Susan says, ‘It’s such an honour to be given this award, which I hope will enable us to create more healthy discussion about death in our society.
‘People who are dying are often perceived as a vulnerable group, but in palliative care and through my charity work, we aim to change that, and give people real choices to have honest, informed conversations about death.’
The award was presented at the Florence Nightingale Museum in London by Welch Allyn, a manufacturer of frontline medical diagnostic equipment. The award includes an education bursary of £1,500, which Susan has donated to the Natural Death Centre. Susan is based at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.
