Take a look at some of the excellent people we have featured who are making us proud in the NHS in Wales.

Family give thanks for Mum's 'fantastic' mental health care
Two kind-hearted sisters have found a novel way to thank the NHS staff who have been helping their Mum recover from mental health problems – the girls cut a combined 25 inches off their hair to give something back to the mental health services that have been supporting their Mum. “I couldn’t be more proud of my girls for wanting to help other people who are struggling with their mental health. It’s something that means a lot to me and my family as the support I have received has been brilliant,” said Mum.
Read what the girls had to say on Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s website.

New approach to volunteering in Powys
The week of the NHS 70th birthday in July saw the launch of a new volunteering programme in Powys, developed jointly between the Powys Volunteer Centre and Powys Teaching Health Board. The Red Kite Volunteer scheme has developed a team of volunteers who enhance patient experience by assisting the nursing team with tasks such as spending time talking to patients, helping at meal times, keeping bed areas tidy, and making cups of tea.
