Earlier this year at our Open day in Telford we announced Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth as the winners of our Purple Iris award.
The award which has been running biennially since 2013, is voted for by patients and recognises outstanding stoma care in community and clinical settings.
We were delighted to visit the team in Portsmouth to present them with their award.
2019 saw a record number of nominations so for the first time we also announced two runners up, North Hampshire Hospital (Basingstoke), and Monklands in Airdrie.
