Tracey Shackleton

Nominated for Nursing Lifetime Achievement

Works at Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

“Tracey is a huge support to the nurses and doctors on the neonatal unit.
She has a 6th sense for when people are struggling and is always willing to advocate for people who are being treated unfairly or need some extra support- not only have I witnessed it first hand, but I’ve seen her support many others in the same way. She cuts straight to the point and gets the job done, in a really nice way and with a cracking sense of humour. She cares so deeply about the patients, families and team and works tirelessly to ensure that the best outcome is met. She seems far too young for a lifetime achievement award- but she’s meeting all the criteria. A pleasure to work with and an absolute legend.”
