In memory of Andrew
Cheques totalling a magnificent £1,500 have been presented to the Adult Intensive Care Unit at Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, in memory of St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, stalwart Andrew Nutter, who sadly died following heart surgery on July 28th.
Andrew's wife Trisha, son Matt and daughter Hannah recently visited the unit to present the cheques to ICU Matron Jackie Redfern in appreciation of the excellent care Andrew received during his stay there. Also present was Prior of the Community of the Tree of Life Rachel Bennetts.
The money was collected at Andrew's funeral in August and has also been sent in since from friends and colleagues. It will be used to fund staff training in the Adult Intensive Care Unit.
St Mary's Church stalwart Andrew Nutter.
Trisha said: "We wanted to recognise the way ALL the staff on the ward worked with a quiet caring efficiency. We were impressed with the way Andrew and each of us were treated and respected and how we were included in all the decisions of care. We would like to particularly acknowledge the support given during the process of letting Andrew gently go without pain and in peace.
"We feel investment in the staff is important and retention of staff depends on how they feeled valued so asking for the money to be for training will help this. All training money comes from non NHS money.”
