LOVE, patience and helpful advice are three of the reasons why Andrea Le Page has been nominated for the Angel of the Year Award.
Pat Brehaut has put forward the clinical nurse specialist for colorectal and stoma care for the Ravenscroft-sponsored award.
Mrs Brehaut said she had been very unwell and this led to her needing an operation in Southampton. While that went well, she ended up contracting sepsis.
This changed her life and led to her requiring special care: ‘After I came back Andrea has looked after me ever since my operation,’ she said.
‘Andrea has looked after me so faithfully, both at home and at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital for the last two-and-a-half years.
‘She always exercises much love and patience – she’s always there with a hug and a friendly word, offering helpful advice and constant care.’
