In August I was contacted by the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, the South East region of Wales’ NHS service, and commissioned to shoot portraits of the Value-Based Health Care team as part of an awards submission for recognised great service. The team support and rehabilitate patients who suffer with serious, often life-threatening heart conditions and nurse them back to health with the use of data visualisations to track progress.
After the COVID-19 pandemic and the monumental effort nationwide from the NHS, I jumped at the chance to shine a bit of a spotlight (quite literally) on some of the staff who all play an unsung part in helping people. Everyone was fun and bubbly, and very accomodating and I was grateful to have the chance to work with some lovely ladies who heroically put up with my dry humour and naff jokes. Job done!
EDIT: ** I’ve since learned that the team have now been shortlisted into the final for the awards and will attend a ceremony in Cardiff next month to find out whether they’ve won. Sending luck and best wishes to everyone!
