Angela Luke

Angela is a Registered Nurse in the Gynae team who was nominated by a patient who had miscarried:

“I was admitted to hospital under upsetting circumstances whereby we had found out our baby’s heart had stopped beating and I had a miscarriage. Due to this I had to have an assisted miscarriage on the ward. During this time there were complications (I lost too much blood) and I had to be taken to theatre.

“I’d like to nominate Angela as she was calm, compassionate and comforting the whole day. She explained reassuringly what was going on at all stages and made me trust in her at the most vulnerable time. Angela allowed us to see our baby (which was only 11 weeks) which she had lovingly prepared – I cannot imagine for a moment how this must feel to do. She did not falter at our emotions and allowed us to grieve and ask the questions we needed. She held my hand at the most difficult times and I will forever be grateful that I was in her care at such a sensitive and hard time.”
