Celebrating the work we do
Jodie Deards Carers lead, patient and carer experience, Lister Hospital in Stevenage
Our Commitment to Carers award winner at the RCNi Nurse Awards 2017 explains how the experience has allowed her to reflect on her nursing practice and to understand the effect her initiative has had on others
