The award was presented for the team's innovative `Taste for Pleasure` scheme, which allows staff to use a patient's favourite flavours when receiving end of life care.
The award was received by Jules Lock, Jules Lewis and Claire Saxby from The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH). It was presented by Professor Michael Griffin, President of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
Kate Forster, director of PATCH, said:
The Shrewsbury and Telford application resonated with me hugely. On a personal level this is something I would have changed if I could for my mum. Watching her eat and drink nothing was awful. The Shrewsbury team showed innovation, humanity and constant care right to the very end – and that is what PATCH is about.
