Andrea Croft, Anticoagulation Lead Advanced Practitioner at the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, and Trustee of Thrombosis UK, was delighted to be awarded winner of The Judges Award at the recent prestigious Anticoagulation Achievement Awards
Hosted by Lyn Brown MP in the Terrace Pavilion, House of Commons on Wednesday October 10th 2018. The award recognized the outstanding work of Andrea Croft who had demonstrated exceptional drive and leadership in establishing an exemplar anticoagulation service.
In making the award, the Judges have reviewed data measures along with personal endorsements on the measured and real difference that Andrea has made to patient safety, experience and outcomes through service provision.
It was clear that Andrea also demonstrated innovation and shared learning to extend understanding and knowledge across multiple healthcare professional teams both locally, nationally and globally.
Consideration was also given to evidence of personalised care that each patient has received as a result of this exceptional healthcare professional, and undertaking to ensure all patients, whether at risk of venous thromboembolism or having been diagnosed with a thrombotic event, are provided with sufficient information tailored to their needs, and opportunity to discuss and raise questions to support their well-being alongside physical recovery.
