Linda Carruthers – Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust – Highly Commended – Unsung Nursing Hero Award 2015

Linda is a CPN based in Workington, Cumbria. She has been my CPN for over five years now and without her in my life I would have died a long time ago. She is incredibly modest and will play down her contribution, but her consistency and encouragement have been stabilising forces and I don’t know what I would do without her. Linda has always fully involved me in my care and we complete and review my care plan together. She shares records with me and is always honest. She understands the importance of an open and honest relationship with me, and of being consistent and meets me at my level rather than being patronising.
