Staff at Worthing Hospital in Sussex “pulled out all the stops” to ensure a couple’s wedding went ahead on their planned day, despite the bride having to stay in hospital for care.
Joann Howells, 46, from East Preston, who was receiving cancer treatment revealed to a nurse how disappointed she was to have to cancel her wedding planned for 21 June.
Hospital staff worked together to give the couple a wedding ceremony and reception.
It’s not always possible to do what Ms Howells’ nurses did and opportunities don’t always present themselves, but when you’re been able to, how have you gone the extra mile for your patients?
