Eagle Radio Biz Awards – May 2017
On Thursday 4th May at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care scooped not one, but two wins at the annual Eagle Radio Biz Awards. PTHC won first place in both shortlisted categories; Chief Executive Sarah Brocklebank scooped the Leadership Award, whilst PTHC Occupational Therapist, Lisi Pilgrem bagged Employee of the Year. The award announcements were preceded by live music from Rachel Rose, whom you may have seen recently on ITV’s The Voice, and an inspirational talk from the founder of Parkrun, Paul Sinton-Hewitt CBE.

Hospice UK conference – November 2016
In November, PTHC staff and trustees travelled to the Hospice UK conference in Liverpool, where three of our posters were on display. They covered a range of topics: our recent highly informative terminology research, which defines appropriate wording to use for palliative care; the key issues raised when becoming involved in new partnerships, as PTHC was with the Beacon Service transfer; and the value of gardening in palliative care, as illustrated by our pioneering Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) sessions. Out of the 274 posters on display at the conference, our Beacon Service poster was selected as one of the top five and we were asked to present it in a competition, which we then won. The remaining 270 posters were then also judged, and our Social and Theraputic Horticulture poster was given ‘highly commended’! Great news for our hard-working team and fantastic recognition of our innovative work.
College of Occupational Therapists’ Merit Award
Theresa Hopwood, Lead Occupational Therapist at the Hospice has been awarded a College of Occupational Therapists’ Merit Award for her outstanding contribution to the profession. “I am delighted to have won this award,” Theresa said. “I had no idea that my colleagues had nominated me until I receive the award letter. For me, the work I have done is all just part of the job.”
Theresa was instrumental in setting up the country’s first in-patient room with environmental controls. The Hospice’s ROWAN (Room Options Without A Nurse) contains equipment that enables patients with reduced mobility to open and close windows and blinds, change their bed position, and even send emails and surf the internet. It gives patients a control over their environment they would not otherwise have.
Theresa received her award officially in July 2013.
