Claire, nominated out of more than 300 Practice Educators, said:

“I feel especially proud to win this award on behalf of a community-based service; it often requires extra creativity, flexibility and support to offer students appropriate experience when we’re visiting patients and families in their own homes at some of the most challenging times of their lives, like immediately after a stroke or at the late stage of a progressive neurological condition.

“This award is for the whole Camden team. We always give students opportunities for interdisciplinary working, through joint-working with a range of therapists and rehabilitation assistants when treating patients, and making service-wide quality improvement projects.

“It’s a privilege to play a part in the next generation of Speech and Language Therapists’ learning, and to be recognised for it is a lovely bonus.”
