It’s been a great first half of the year at Pathway, with awards all round. Nurse Florence Cumberbatch, who is part of the UCLH Pathway Team was awarded a commendation as Employee of the Month, following nomination by numerous staff and colleagues. Florence has been part of the team working exclusively with homeless patients since 2009. Her dedication and hard work have helped hundreds of patients recover from illnesses and injuries resulting from homelessness.

Pathway volunteer Elizabeth Clowes was awarded a Highly Commended in the Small Charities Coalition awards for Britain’s Best Volunteer. Her extraordinary work, creating tools to help frontline professionals assess the mental health of people sleeping on the streets, saw her reach the final 20 applicants of the competition.  Read more about Elizabeth’s work.

Last week Pathway won the London Learning Consortium (LLC) Employer of the Year Award.  Pathway has worked with LLC since 2013, we were nominated for our work training formerly homeless people to become with Care Navigators for homeless hospital patients.

And Giving Them too!

We’ve also been giving awards. Two honorary fellowships to the Faculty of Homeless and Inclusion Health were presented at this year’s International Symposium. Nurse Jane Grey and Dr Les Goldman were recognised for their career-long commitment to healthcare for homeless people.

These awards not only reward and acknowledge the hard work and incredible compassion we see from clinicians every day, but demonstrate the important role of inclusion health in continuing a long tradition of fairness in the NHS.
