STAR Midwife


Congratulations to Sharon Hurst, Bereavement Midwife who is the latest winner of a STAR Award. Sharon was presented with her certificate by Sue Braysher, Director of System Transformation. Sharon was nominated by a very appreciative patients who Sharon helped through a very upsetting time in her life.

The nomination said: “Sharon’s professionalism and caring nature was beyond exceptional. Sharon is one of the nicest people we have ever met and a credit to the #NHS. We were so grateful we had Sharon as our Midwife as she is a fully trained Bereavement Midwife and was so compassionate and kind-hearted. Not only did Sharon take the time to explain things clearly to us but she also came to visit my Husband and I on her day off while we were still in the hospital, she really was amazing. Sharon stayed well past her shift to ensure she was there when I gave birth and was so gentle and lovely. She created a memory box for us, which we will treasure forever and nothing was ever too much trouble. She has called me several times to see how I am and she even attended our baby’s funeral because she knew I didn’t want him to be alone as it was understandably too difficult for us to go. We will never forget Sharon and the help and support she gave us and hope to see her again under better circumstances.
