Carer Liaison Worker Nasima Begum and Senior Nurse Practitioner Hannah Bjorkstrand flew the flag for ELFT at Westminster Abbey's NHS 70 celebration.

All NHS trusts in England and Wales were asked to nominate two staff members to attend an celebratory event at Westminster or Manchester. The event was an opportunity for NHS leads and Government Ministers to come together with staff to celebrate 70 years of the NHS.

Nasima and Hannah had a whirlwind 24 hours. The night before they were at the Royal College of Nursing Awards where they won the Commitment to Carers award for their project work in Tower Hamlets providing support to isolated carers.
