Bristol Dementia Nurse Wins National Award

Natalie Godfrey, lead dementia nurse at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, has been awarded 'Best Dementia Nurse Specialist/Dementia Lead 2013' at the 4th National Dementia Care Awards. The awards acknowledge and reward those who have excelled in their work with people with dementia.

The judges said of Natalie:

We have chosen Natalie because she demonstrated an exceptional level of skill and knowledge in the field combined with tenacity and a positive /can-do attitude which results in her success as a leader of a trust - wide network of the Dementia Champions - while supporting the team to deliver on their aspirations. She also ensures that she never loses spirit of the patient with dementia in their journey through the hospital services.

Natalie Godfrey says: 

"I feel very privileged to have a role that enables me to work with so many enthusiastic committed people, inside and outside of the Trust, to improve the care and support we provide to people with dementia and their families and carers.

"The last 18 months has brought challenge, but also many successes that would not have been possible without our network of dementia champions. It is to those champions that I dedicate this prestigious award."
