Pilgrims Hospice launches awards to celebrate improvements in end of life care

28 September 2017
  • Pat Morley

Hospice nurses came together from across Kent to mark the opening of nominations for the very first Patricia Morley Awards for Improvements in End of Life Care.

The awards celebrate excellence in the end of life care given to people in east Kent and their families. They have been launched thanks to a legacy donation from the family of a past Kent and Canterbury Senior Matron and Pilgrims trustee Pat Morley. Nurses and allied healthcare professionals who work in for the NHS or Pilgrims Hospices anywhere in East Kent can apply.

Wendy Hills, Pilgrims Director of Nursing and Care, explained:

“At Pilgrims we are committed to having a positive impact on the end of life care of as many people in east Kent as possible. This new award is a very special chance for us to say thank you to the hundreds of other professionals in Kent who work so hard to give the best end of life care at a time when families need it most.”

“Pat Morley worked tirelessly to promote excellent nursing within the profession she loved. She also volunteered for many years as a Trustee of Pilgrims Hospices, where her experience was invaluable. It is an honour that Pat’s family have been so generous as to support the launch of this award as part of her legacy. If you can relate to Patricia Morley’s enthusiasm for excellence in care then this award could be for you!”

The prizes for the awards include the Patricia Morley Award for improving end of life in an inpatient setting, a prize of £1,000 that can be used towards a project that will make a difference to patients being cared for either in a hospital ward setting, or a hospice inpatient unit.

The deadline for entries is September 30, and applicants will be notified of the outcome on October 6.
