The lead clinician of the East Berkshire Specialist Mobility Service, which provides mobility services for disabled people in the local area, has been given an award for her work to improve wheelchair provision.
Kashmira Sangle is a physiotherapist and has been recognised by the NHS Windrush 70 awards which awarded her for clinical excellence.
The mother-of-two was announced at an awards ceremony last month where she was described as a ‘stand-out’ nominee.
Speaking to a local newspaper, she said that she was humbled by the award, which she won for driving to improve the wheelchair service she works for.
She told the Maidenhead Advertiser: “They nominated me for my work with disabled patients. It is not just day-to-day work in the clinic.
“I think what I was nominated for was the hard work I put in for improving the wheelchair service.”
“I see patients from about 18 months to end of life. Their lives are quite difficult, as you can imagine.”
East Berkshire Specialist Mobility Service currently provides wheelchairs to service users itself but has outsourced repair and maintenance to Millbrook Healthcare.
