Health Professional Awards
Our Health Professional Awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution health professionals make to pancreatic cancer services. The work of these professionals is vital in improving the lives of people affected by pancreatic cancer, and we want them to know just how much they're valued.
This year, we presented two Health Professional Awards. Find out more below.
Health Professional Excellence/Impact Award
Keith Roberts, Consultant Hepatobiliary and Pancreas Surgeon at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham was presented a Health Professional Award for the incredible work he has done through setting up a successful fast-track surgery pathway for patients diagnosed with operable pancreatic cancer. He was also commended for his ongoing research and his commitment to supporting and encouraging his junior colleagues.
Health Professional Exceptional Award
Eden Galang, Upper GI Cancer Nurse Specialist at York Teaching Hospital, was presented a Health Professional Award for going above and beyond her core professional role in order to enhance the experience of people affected by pancreatic cancer.
Eden said: “I am completely amazed to have been presented with this award for just doing what I love, it’s a complete honour. I don’t know who nominated me, but I am just so thankful that someone thought highly enough of my care to put me forward.
“I also want to give heartfelt thanks to Pancreatic Cancer UK for creating an award which celebrates the work Healthcare Professionals do. This recognition really means a lot to me and it will remind me that I am lucky enough to be in a position to provide help to people who need it. ”
