Action for Family Carers’ Team Win at the MOMA's!

 

Each year Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group celebrate the achievements of professionals working towards improving healthcare outcomes at its Marvels of Mid Essex ceremony.

This year Rebecca Loan, Manager of our Macmillan Carers Service, won the Die Well Award which celebrates those that support people to talk openly and honestly about dying, death and bereavement. The judges said "This person has a passion for end of life care and it’s obvious in everything she does – she was instrumental in bringing together local organisations earlier this year to develop a campaign to talk about dying well."

Action for Family Carers’ Carer Support Worker, Nichola Faiers also won Highly Commended with the judges praising her commitment to helping people talk about the difficult subject of loss and grief.
