Local hospital announces DAISY Award® winner for May 2024

The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) has announced the winner of its DAISY Awards® programme for May 2024.

This is a programme which enables patients, families and colleagues to honour a nurse or midwife who has made a difference to their care.

The aim is to shine the spotlight on nurses and midwives who go the extra mile to ensure patients at PAHT receive high quality care and experiences.

The winner is Shreya Pawar from Stanstead Abbotts, who works as a registered nurse on Ray Ward. She received a nomination from the mother of a patient for the compassion and support she recently gave to her son; and one from a colleague who says she always puts her patients first, shows them compassion, puts new team members at ease and is always ready to learn more and share her knowledge. 

Shreya was presented with her DAISY Award by Sharon McNally, chief nurse and deputy chief executive, at a special ceremony arranged as part of the hospital’s This is Us Week celebrations for colleagues.

Sharon said: “Shreya is a very deserving winner and she should be extremely proud to have been nominated by both a parent and colleague. I am thrilled to present her with the DAISY Award® today. The nomination clearly demonstrates that she puts her patients at the heart of all she does.”

Shreya received the DAISY Award® certificate, a beautiful hand carved Healer’s Touch Sculpture from Zimbabwe, a pin badge, copy of the full nomination, a gift bag and cinnamon rolls. The award also gives her eligibility for numerous professional development, education and wellness benefits as part of the DAISY Awards® programme.
