Debbie Hartt was an outstanding nurse, warm and compassionate with her patients and their families, and devoted to their welfare. She had a wonderful, lively personality, full of fun and laughter and was a good friend and mentor to her colleagues. Her life and work in the Liver Unit at Birmingham Children’s Hospital was full of meaning, professionally and personally to so many people and she left a fantastic professional legacy. She was one of the founders of The Associate Members group within the Intestinal Transplant Association – an international body which is dedicated to small bowel transplantation.
Debbie also played a major role in the planning and success of the Small Bowel Family Days and Study Days for doctors, nurses, dieticians and others, which sought to bridge the gap between hospital and rehabilitation at home and in the community.
When she died in 2008, a fund was established in her name to enable nurses and allied health professionals attend study days and conferences to help continue her work to improve the physical and mental well being of children and families living with liver and/or intestinal transplantation.
Allied heath professionals and nurses are invited annually to apply for funding....
