Dorothy Dixon
Wellbeing resource coordinator
Defence Medical Welfare Service

Hi, my name is Dorothy, and I was fortunate to win a Student Nursing Times Award. This was a great honour and a privilege. For the last 9 years I have worked for my local mental health trust Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust (LPFT). The trust enabled me to complete my training and have supported me to gain the knowledge and confidence so I can offer my service users excellent evidence-based care. In June I decided to broaden my skill set and joined Defence Medical Welfare Service (DMWS) as a wellbeing support coordinator. This role is diverse and involves providing wellbeing support to RAF Personnel and Police Federation employees. I am extremely excited to be part of the 2024 judging panel and look forward to reading the nominations and meeting the candidates invited for interview.
