Prestigious patient experience award win for Cambridgeshire Community Nursing team by User Not Found Mar 22, An innovative programme that offers support for young people with life limiting illnesses and their families in Cambridgeshire has won two prestigious awards from the Patient Experience Network PEN.
The programme has been running within Cambridgeshire Community Services since , currently supports 28 children and families with five siblings also receiving sibling beads as part of the programme. Each bead given to a child signifies a particular step in their journey, with beads available for everything from procedures and x —rays to overnight stays and birthdays. The team love interacting with the young people supported by the programme and the beads mean so much to them, it really helps them share their journey with friends and family.
The more beads we give out to a child the bigger a talking point they become, one of our children has close to 30, beads. We have long known about the quality of care and support they provide through the Beads of Courage Programme but to receive recognition from PEN whilst up against some equally amazing programme is a brilliant achievement for the team and the trust as a whole.
The Beads of Courage Programme was developed in the USA in and is now used around the world in over hospitals.

It is a truly wonderful achievement. They found Maia was having difficulty breathing and she was diagnosed with long segment tracheal stenosis narrowing of the trachea, which provides air to and from the lungs and this had to take priority over her heart surgery.
At just two months old, surgeons performed a slide tracheoplasty, a pioneering surgery technique that shortens the trachea but makes it wider and stronger.
The cottages, Armadillas and CargoPods are available to book all year round. We advise to print this out and bring it with you as you may not be able to access it on your phone.
A few months after her trachea operation, Maia returned to GOSH for more surgery to repair the holes in her heart. After day 5, Maia was determined to make a full recovery, and 2 weeks after the operations, Maia was soon well enough to go home again.
Both the doctors and nurses provided Maia with the care she needed so she was strong enough to go through the major surgery that was required to save her life. Maia is making great progress and is now a very talkative 2 year old toddler. For further information on how you can help raise funds for the charity, please visit www.

The money donated was raised through their Darts League which takes place twice a year, with between 18 and 20 players participating in each. Warrant Officer Anthony Booth said: For further information on how you can help raise funds for the charity please visit www. Store manager Guy Schwabe said: As a fellow health professional, I would like to say a particularly big thank you to Matt, he has made a big difference to my ability to move and to my pain levels and I am very grateful to be almost pain free, and I know this will continue to improve with exercises and time.
The impact on staff was incredible - several people have said they felt valued, supported and were able to connect with others in similar roles during the day. This was not just 'part of her job'- her enthusiasm, commitment and passion deserves recognition and listening to the comments from staff on the day, I feel this award would go a small way to demonstrating to others that when you do things with passion and commitment, that is recognised.
Young families have festive fun in Great Yarmouth by User Not Found Dec 19, Staff from the Norfolk Family Nurse Partnership team were joined by the young parents they support across Great Yarmouth for a fun filled festive celebration this week. The event allowed staff from the partnership, provided in Norfolk by Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, and the families to get creative during messy play where they could make their own Christmas decorations, noise makers and lots more.
Alongside the festive fun, a number of partner organisations, including the integrated Contraception and Sexual Health service - ICaSH, Infant feeding, Dental Health and Healthwatch were on hand to provide helpful health and wellbeing advice.
Representatives from East Norfolk College and Great Yarmouth College were present to provide the young families with information about further education courses.
Students from Great Yarmouth College provided a pampering opportunity for the young mums with nail painting and hand massages, which were very much enjoyed.
Brittney Lammin and Ashley Emms attended the event whilst expecting their first child in January and really enjoyed the afternoon for all the information and advice they got all in one place. They added that they receive great support from their family nurse Jayne England and are really looking forward to welcoming their new arrival. Lisa Lorenzen, Family Nurse Supervisor, added: We were really impressed with how confident the young parents were with their children and how much they all enjoyed getting involved in the messy play activities we were able to provide.
These visits compliment midwifery care provided and deliver most of the Healthy Child Programme.
After two weeks of having an every day cold, followed by sinusitis, he woke up one day with his left eye so purple and swollen he could hardly open it. He was rushed to hospital and diagnosed with orbital cellulitis putting him at high risk of blood poisoning, losing his eye or hearing or, even worse, meningitis. After two weeks of intensive drug treatment, he thankfully recovered.
Over two days in Summer , I will be walking nearly miles continuously, day and night, from Hunstanton to Lowestoft including along the Norfolk and England coastal paths. In he completed a 2 day sponsored training weekend including a night trek of Mount Snowdon, used to train those attempting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
With minimal sleep, he reached the summit at 4. I visited the ward recently and it was great to see how the money I have raised so far as been spent on toys and equipment and to hear how the funds I hope to raise with the coastal walk would be used. Everyone on the ward is very grateful to him and the toys and equipment he has funded are making a real difference to the children we care for during their time on the ward.
We wish him every success with his mile trek!
