National success

Since beginning in 2013, the ALS has achieved regional and national recognition for its work supporting patients in Wakefield and has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious healthcare awards, including:

  • Nursing Times Awards 2015
  • RCNI Nurse Awards 2016

The service has supported over 1,000 local patients in four years – almost one-third of which were referred directly from the Emergency department – and we’re committed to helping the service grow over the next three years.
