Dr Charles Daniels, St Luke’s Medical Director, received the award from host Esther Rantzen during a virtual ceremony. Speaking on the accolade, Dr Daniels said:
“It is a real honour, and we are all incredibly proud to have won.This award recognises the innovative work St Luke’s Hospice has pioneered to help prevent unwanted hospitalisations. This is led by Nurses and consultants who provide telephone support to families, community workers and the London Ambulance service. This helps to ensure that patients are able to get the care they need in their own homes and thus to avoid unwanted hospitalisations.”
