Winner of the Spinal Injuries Health and Wellbeing award 2015
On Thursday 4th June, the Spinal Injuries Rebuilding Lives Awards 2015 took place in Birmingham.
As proud sponsors of the awards, Jackie Lindsay, Managing Director and Nick Kershaw, National Service Development Manager attended to present the Health and Wellbeing Achievement Award.
This award recognises the individual who has made a significant difference to the health and wellbeing of spinal cord injured people with rehab and life-style guidance or emotional support.
We are very pleased to announce the winner of the award as Ruth Peachment, Occupational Therapy Clinical Specialist at the National Spinal Injuries centre at Stoke Mandeville.
Ruth believes passionately about maximising an individual’s potential and continually looks for innovations for both inpatients and out patients. Most recently this has included the introduction of Pets as Therapy dogs in the Centre. Ruth utilises her knowledge to encourage best practice across all centres and does this via meetings and presenting at SIA Study Days.
Jackie Lindsay, Managing Director of Pulse Community Healthcare, presented Ruth with her award on the night and said,
‘’the enthusiasm and tireless work of so many passionate and committed individuals was overwhelming. It was a privilege for us to support a category with such strong contenders who have contributed to the health and wellbeing of the UK spinal injuries community, in such creative and imaginative ways. It was a difficult task to pick a winner from such an inspirational group of people but Ruth was very well deserved of the award.’’
