Shelly is a real health hero!


Massive congratulations to midwife Shelly Gascgoine who was a finalist at The Sun’s Health Hero Awards last week for being Yellow Alert! 

Shelly visited little Eni Brown when she was just a day old and was concerned to hear that Eni’s nappies were showing pale poo.

She referred her immediately, and Eni was diagnosed with biliary atresia, underwent Kasai surgery and is now doing really well.

Shelly was nominated for the award by Eni’s mum Charlie who said:

“Shelly’s quick response and call to the doctors at the hospital changed our family’s future in such an amazing way.

“Things could have been remarkably different without her quick-thinking actions and I can’t thank her enough.”
