“We know that simple acts of kindness and compassion can make a real difference to our patients, especially in a hospice. Alison epitomised this with her sunny disposition and dedication.
“We will never forget Alison and she will always be part of teamNHFT.”
Alison’s husband Ray, said: “I would just like to say thanks because my Alison thought a lot of the place and I have never seen her so happy when she started working there, she always came home and told me what she had done and what everyone else got up to. When she was telling me her face was lit up and smiling. So for that I would like to thank everyone for making her a part of the team and a part of a family there and also would like to thank everyone for the kind words and wishes. Keep up the good work.”
