The Henry Garnett Certificate celebrates Macmillan professionals who’ve gone above and beyond their regular duties to support Macmillan. Certificates were presented locally to five outstanding professionals late last year.
Lynn Adams, Macmillan Consultant Nurse, NHS Grampian
Lynn is involved at a strategic level with the progression of cancer nursing across Scotland. She has been instrumental in furthering the professional development of other Macmillan professionals through her support of their requests for further training and attendance at workshops and conferences.
Caroline Boyer, Macmillan Information and Support Services Lead, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust
Caroline leads a service across Lincolnshire that is forward thinking, innovative and highly valued by Macmillan and the health and social care community. It is also fully integrated into the cancer pathway.
Liz Darlison, Macmillan Nurse Consultant, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust
Recognised locally, nationally and internationally, Liz has made a considerable contribution to the nursing care and management of people affected by lung cancer and, in particular, mesothelioma. Visit macmillan.org.uk/lizdarlison for more on Liz’s work.
Lorna Senior, Macmillan Community Nurse, NHS Western Isles
Lorna is one of two Macmillan nurses working in a remote island group in the Outer Hebrides. Lorna is committed to further developing the cancer nursing support service available in her area. She also works very closely with the lead cancer nurse for the Western Isles to look at ways of doing this in a demanding geographical location.
Vicky Woodall, Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Vicky spends her time helping and supporting people with cancer at Leighton Hospital in Cheshire. As well as being an exceptional nurse, Vicky has given her time to Macmillan’s Direct Marketing Fundraising team, allowing them to use her image to explain to the public just what our nurses do.
