Rhonnda
Colleagues at Cirencester Hospital are celebrating the news that one of their team has been nominated for a Pride of the Cotswolds award.

Rhondda May, who has been a healthcare assistant for 33 years, is up for the Health Carer Award.

She has been nominated for being ‘a truly exceptional, caring lady, full of empathy and love’.

This is not the first time Rhondda has been recognised for her work - last year she was shortlisted for an NHS70 Award.

Reacting to the news Rhondda, who works on the Coln Ward, said: “To get another nomination is quite touching. It just makes you feel that you are doing a good job.”

The Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard's Pride of the Cotswolds Awards, held in conjunction with Ecotricity, are returning for a second year, to recognise the outstanding achievement of men, women, children and organisations across the Cotswolds.
