Fiona Littledale spent all her working life as an information manager. For the final ten years she worked as Faculty Liason Librarian for the St George's Medical School. During her time there she trained hundreds of health professionals to access relevant, peer-reviewed and reliable information. Despite her failing health during 7 years of cancer care she devoted herself to encouraging them in continuing professional development - seeking to go further and learn more in pursuit of excellence.
Each year the Fiona Littledale Award is to be given to an Oncology nurse who has demonstrated their personal commitment to developing their skills and understanding of the field. The award, presented at the annual PEN awards,
will enable them to undertake further training during the year of the award at no cost to themselves.
We’re setting up this page in our first year so that we can hit the £5000 threshold that will allow us to register as an official charity and continue Fiona’s legacy
