Angela Brassett -Harknett

Winner: Angela Brassett-Harkness, Psychotherapist, Eating Disorders Outpatient Service

Angela was nominated by two patients for her devoted care and dedication to their treatment. Both nominees had suffered from very serious eating disorders and expressed their sadness that as they had got so much better, Angela would no longer be such a major part of their lives.

Judges said: "Her nomination immediately stood out as she has not only transformed lives, she has actually saved them. Both her nominators began by telling us ‘I would not be here but for Angela.’”

Angela said: "I enjoy seeing people change. I get to see people become better eaters and better body image accepters. I’m incredibly proud to be one of the long-standing members of such a fantastic unit".
