Volunteers at Hampstead’s Royal Free Hospital have been given a national award in recognition of their work with cancer patients.
Miriam Bromnick, Alison Cameron, Ida Newman and Jane Andrews provide support and care to those affected by the disease at the hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre.
They were presented with the Deborah Hutton Award by Royal Free chief executive David Sloman after being nominated by Macmillan information specialist Alison Bowman, who runs the centre at the hospital.
The award is named after Deborah Hutton, who lost her fight against cancer in 2005 and wrote a book entitled What Can I Do To help? to provide ideas for family and friends helping their loved ones deal with the disease.
David Sloman said: “These four ladies are fantastic.

“They provide absolutely invaluable care and support for cancer patients and their families just when they need it most and they continually go beyond the call of duty.
“I feel very privileged to have them here at the Royal Free.”
