The trust’s Leading Lights award this summer followed her 15 years of service, the past six on a rehabilitation ward at the Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital, Welwyn.

Leading Lights awards are an annual event at the trust, aimed at celebrating the hard work, dedication and effectiveness of staff.

Ms Chisoko was the individual who won the accolade for ‘demonstrating fantastic patient care’, a category for those who show compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.

She told Frontline: ‘I was so happy because of the amount of work that we put in, and sometimes we don’t get recognised for all the things we are doing.’

Ms Chisoko said she worked with a range of in-patients, including people affected by Parkinson’s, stroke and falls. She gives one-to-one support and leads exercise classes.

‘The trust did an interview with me as well, and they are using it as part of recruitment, to encourage people to join the trust,’ Ms Chisoko added.
