Care in the Community

Shropshire Doctors Cooperative (Shropdoc) used the occasion of their Annual General Meeting to present the prestigious Steve Hugh Award for outstanding clinical work in Primary Care to nurse Sue Davies.

She has been a district nurse for over 20 years and currently works at both Prescott Surgery in Baschurch and Knockin surgery in North Shropshire.

Dr Russell Muirhead, Chairman of Shropdoc said:
“She epitomizes excellence in District Nursing and is reknown for providing care and support beyond the call of duty. She has shown particular skills and dedication in the provision of palliative care and gives unwavering support to patients, their families and carers. Students looking to join the nursing profession should look to Sue for an ideal role model. During these times of much criticism of the NHS it is worth reminding ourselves that there are many highly motivated and dedicated people that get on doing their work quietly and effectively to the benefit of our local communities. Sue is one example of the many that are around us and it is right that such examples of high quality be recognised.”

As well as the Steve Hugh Award there is a cash award which will be split between Sue and her nominated charity, the Severn Hospice Help at Home team.

“Shropdoc service is in good health

I would like to make a comment on the Shropdoc Service which I have been very impressed with over the past two weeks. The service and attention given by Drs McMurray and Lovell during their visits to my home has been fantastic. Being a senior citizen aged 91, I was very concerned with my state of health. The reassurance and medication given by these two doctors certainly improved my condition. Furthermore, the time taken to visit me was very quick and responsive. I feel some of the bad publicity on the NHS Shropdoc service is not warranted and not a true reflection of the excellent service I received during the past two weekends. Many thanks to all concerned….much appreciated.
