Extract from nominations:
'Jane Holder is my clinical HIV nurse specialist, and is one amazing woman. She is dedicated to the support of her patients and is often still working until 10-11pm answering questions and ensuring the HIV service within Taunton Deane and outlying regions runs smoothly. She also attends our charity facilitated peer support groups to talk through our concerns and issues in her own time at weekends. She also has assisted in manning the world AIDS day stalls Eddystone put on in her own time. She has pioneered outlying clinics in other hospitals such as Yeovil to run clinics there too to help patients living far from Taunton. She is passionate about HIV prevention, runs training to student nurses and clinicians, and since the service has split HIV from GU is currently the only person running the HIV service full time, with a part time shared consultant. Her work load is extreme and she never complains, rarely having time to spend with her own family due to her dedication to the post. An amazing person full of cheer and always ready to answer any questions, I personally don’t know how I would have accepted my own diagnosis so well without her, and I know many others who feel exactly the same. I know it isn't a big London organisation with big budgets and high profiles, but I think that is why Jane is SO awesome. She works miracles every day on her own with the constraints and restrictions currently running through the HIV funding initiative, and she is still fighting for our rights and health care, and absolutely wants the very best for everyone she encounters. I haven't met a single soul in the HIV field so far that is more deserving, and I think you would really miss out on meeting this wonderful woman.'
