Celebrating some Macmillan professionals who have recently won awards.
Jan Temenos, Oakhaven Schools Project Coordinator, was named Cancer Professional of the Year at the Quality in Care Excellence in Oncology Awards 2012. Jan has helped to change attitudes to death and dying through her work on The Acorn Project, an initiative that links schools with local hospices.
The Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds won the award for Improving the quality of life for people living with cancer and was highly commended in the Reducing Cancer Equality category. The team has worked with local wig suppliers to improve wig provision to the black and minority ethnic community.
The Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre was commended in the Cancer Charity Initiative of the Year category. The team developed group sessions to help people with cancer and their carers prepare before the start of chemotherapy, through information and discussions.
Congratulations to all the winners.
