Jayne has shown considerable courage resilience and a positive approach to life following the devastating effects of her illness. He life change immeasurably 2 years ago but through sheer determination grit and a resolve to make things better for others she is now working to improve care and treatment for others her face a diagnosis or possible diagnosis of Sepsis. I am incredibly proud that Jayne is a Nurse and that she works in my organisation. She is a great role model and very much an NHS star

Jayne is an inspirational role model for anyone who has ever faced adversity and for all NHS staff. she has used her own incredibly difficult situation to raise awareness of sepsis at local and national level. Jayne has shown tremendous courage and determination in overcoming any barriers she faces and gives up a huge amount of her own time to promote a positive message and fund raise. It was a privilege to hear her speaking at our recent nurse conference where she was an inspiration to us all.

Heard Jayne's story at nursing conference it was both inspiring and got me thinking about sepsis. Despite everything nothing stops Jayne to continue educating staff to improve care for other patients.
