Award-winning nurse is a video star

SSP Health Practice Nurse Janine Hussey was given the honour of having a video made of her hard work for patients.

Janine was named People's Champion at the recent Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards and organisers created the video for the awards ceremony to explain why Janine was a clear winner.

Janine, pictured, who works at The Height General Practice in Salford, was selected for her dedication to many aspects of her work, including her care for elderly patients, work with the LGBTQ community and time spent helping at charity events.

Janine visits many frail, elderly patients in their homes and often goes to buy food and other essentials for them at local shops.

The award organisers said: “Practice Nurse Janine Hussey was crowned the People’s Champion after being nominated by multiple patients.

“Janine is not only a dedicated and inspiring Practice Nurse, she actively supports her local food bank and trains nurses from another practice on her days off.

“Janine has established great links with the local LGBT community and has been known to help her patients with shopping and cooking during her home visits.”

She also took part in a ‘Pride In Practice’ video highlighting how GP surgeries can be involved in the quality assurance support service that strengthens and develops Primary Care Services’ relationship with their lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans patients within the local community.

Janine has also been heavily involved in charity initiatives, including a Mission Christmas event last year.
