Hospice nurse wins academic award

Niamh Eve, a Community Clinical Nurse Specialists at St Helena Hospice, has been given an award for excellence by Anglia Ruskin University.

Niamh Eve, a Community Clinical Nurse Specialists at St Helena Hospice, has been given an award for excellence by Anglia Ruskin University.

Niamh (32) received the Kim Trye Award in recognition of her commitment to palliative care.
A delighted Niamh said: “I didn’t know anything about it until I got an email from Anglia Ruskin asking for my bank details. When I checked, they told me I’d been given the award because of my commitment to palliative care and my grades.

“I don’t know who nominated me because when I emailed my lecturers to tell them about it, they congratulated me but nobody admitted it was them!”

After qualifying as a nurse eight years ago Niamh worked in orthopaedics, but knew she wanted to become involved in hospice care.

“I always knew I wanted to do palliative care, but it’s a difficult area to get into. My parents were both nurses and ran a residential home in Clacton. My mum was always brilliant with people who were dying.”

After working at St Helena Hospice for two years, Niamh began studying for a degree in Palliative Care in 2014. As well as fitting her studies around her work schedule Niamh, who has dyslexia, gave birth to her son Cillian eighteen months ago.

“I had tutoring as a child to help me cope with the dyslexia and when it comes to Cillian I have a really supportive family. My husband Barry is also a nurse and he has been brilliant.”
