At the NUH Honours Awards 2017, Ciaran was nominated for Lifetime Achievement Award for the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Out of all the nominees, he was shortlisted along with two others for the award in recognition of his work.
Ciaran was nominated by patient Lisa Cross and her family. Lisa had suffered from Hidradenitis, a painful and long-term skin condition causing abscesses and scarring on the skin since she was 12.
Lisa explained in her nomination that “this man is helping to give me my life back! He’s such a lovely, honest man who always does his best. I can now wear a sleeveless top for the first time in 15 years, all thanks to him. He’s a ray of sunshine.”
