Awarded the British Empire Medal

We’re thrilled to announce that Jayne Dingemans, Director of Patient Services at Garden House Hospice Care has been awarded a British Empire Medal by the Crown for her hands-on service to the local community during times of Covid-19.

Jayne is an outstandingly dedicated, compassionate and experienced professional whose wealth of expertise in palliative care is highly respected by peers and colleagues in the Hospice community.

Upon receiving the award, Jayne said:

“Thank you, I am honoured to be awarded a British Empire Medal by the Crown in the Queen’s Birthday Honors list for contribution to the Coronavirus response.

“I would never have expected to receive a reward for the work that I do and love every day as the Director of Patient Services at Garden House Hospice Care, even in the most unprecedented of times.

“The award is a testament to the staff and volunteers at Garden House Hospice Care who have worked so hard to make this happen.

“The Coronavirus has highlighted the work that Hospices do and have been doing across the country to support their community and the wider health and social care system.”

During the pandemic, Jayne has demonstrated exceptional leadership, ensuring staff remain focussed on shared organisational values, identity and purpose ensuring Hospice patients, at home and in our In-Patient Unit, have received the best care, she has initiated collaboration with care homes, delivering specialist education and patient support, and has directed rapid retraining and redeployment of non-clinical hospice staff to the frontline, increasing the hospice's specialist offer to the NHS.

In parallel to this innovation, she led the team who secured Garden House's outreach services, supporting children and families, and those isolated, lonely and frail.

We hope you join us in congratulating Jayne on this fantastic and very well-deserved achievement.
