Bedford and Salford nurses win award for MS care

Two specialist nurses have been named as the joint winners of the Multiple Sclerosis Trust’s “My Super Nurse” award 2013.

The award recognises the work of specialist nurses who have made a real difference for people with MS

This year it went to Miranda Olding, from the MS Therapy Centre Beds and Northants, and Lindsay Harrison, from Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

Both nurses were nominated for the award by people affected by MS. Over 100 different MS nurses across the country were nominated, but Ms Olding and Ms Harrison received by far the most votes, leading the MS Trust to decide to name them joint winners.

Jo Sopala, the charity’s marketing and fundraising director, said: “We launched the My Super Nurse award as part of MS Awareness Week in 2012 and the response was brilliant. This year it has been overwhelming.

“We have received hundreds of testimonies from across the country. My Super Nurse highlights the real difference specialist nurses can make for everyone affected by MS and shows why, in a time of tighter NHS budgets, we at the MS Trust are determined to safeguard their role.”
