Cardiff & Vale Health Charity is pleased to announce Laura Trustcott-Wright, WellChild Parent Trainer Nurse, has been crowned Health Hero for January.

Laura has been instrumental in bringing and leading a Wales-first Better at Home Training Suite to Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. The Suites are designed to help support parents and carers with how to meet the needs of their seriously ill children, within a safe space to prepare for providing care in the home.

Alison Davies, Senior Nurse of Children, Young People and Family Health Services said, “Within Cardiff and Vale University Health Board we are extremely proud of the work Laura has undertaken as a WellChild Parent Trainer and the impact she has made in such a short space of time. Laura has an infectious zest for life and a ‘can do’ attitude that is truly inspirational. She demonstrates strong leadership and advocates for the children and young people in her care on a daily basis.”
