JAMIE Goldswain has been named as the overall Nightingale Award winner for 2014 by the South Tees Hospitals Trust.

Jamie, a healthcare assistant on ward two at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, also landed the award for healthcare assistant of the year, to make it a double celebration for the 27-year-old from Normanby.

He is not only the first male to pick up the coveted award but he is also the first non-registered nurse to collect the prize in the ten years it has been running.

One of the two nominations received for Jamie said of him: “He is the ultimate professional at all times. Whether the patient is acutely confused, has dementia, experiences delirium or exhibits signs of depression, Jamie adapts to their individual needs to support them.”

Jamie said: “To be nominated was fantastic, but to actually win the Nightingale was the cherry on the cake for me."

Each year, the nurse and midwife consultants at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust ask for nominations from staff and patients highlighting nursing and midwifery staff who have gone above and beyond their duty to deliver exceptional patient care,

The 14 other winners included Jennifer Gilby, Haley Hutchinson, Jill Best, Deborah Slimings, The Victoria Ward (Friarage Hospital), Sue Wheeldon, Zoe Clarke, Ward 28, Sarah Batty, Tocketts Ward (East Cleveland Hospital), Cheryl Honeyman, Katie Milburn, The Neonatal Unit, Sallie Southall and Jenny Brown.
