Newsbite: National Aspergillosis Centre Patients Support Meeting Shortlisted for National Award

Patient nursing & support staff at the National Aspergillosis Centre, Manchester, UK have been shortlisted for a Nursing Times award for their 'Actual and virtual' patients support meetings that happen once per month. Extensive efforts to put patients first means that monthly meetings are held to provide advice, information and mutual support as well as encourage patients involvement in their own health management, research at the NAC and more. Patients and their carers can attend the meeting both actually (physically attending the meeting) or virtually (tuning in to watch via the internet, asking questions of the speaker using the internet) and the novelty of this approach is proving very successful.
The winner is decided on November the 2nd 2011 - Well done team and Good Luck!
