"This is well deserved
recognition for the inspiring work of the whole team. This a genuinely
innovative new model of care for patients with muscle wasting neurological
diseases who previously died in childhood but now transition to adult care with
very complex needs. There were many significant obstacles to making this unit a
reality which Ros Quinlivan and the team successfully overcame with critical support from
the UCLH charity. The improvement in patient experience and patient outcomes is
very significant. Our ambition is to support the roll out this model ultimately to each NHS region across England"
