A Speech and Language Therapist from Chepstow has been awarded with a prestigious medal for her work in the field of Speech & Language Therapy, especially as it relates to working with people who have suffered with head and neck cancer.

Sharon Lacey was awarded the British Empire Medal for her sterling work in the Speech and Language field, having worked for the NHS in Gwent for more than 26 years. The award was presented in a special ceremony at the County Hall in Usk, by the Lord Lieutenant of Gwent, Simon Boyle.

At the time of the award, Mrs Lacey worked as the Lead for Adult Speech & Language Therapy Services in the region; with her work having been recognised when she was named in the Queen's British Honours list earlier in the year. Specifically the award was granted in recognition of her contribution to the management of head and neck cancer both in the Gwent area and throughout Wales.

Mrs Lacey accepted the award, on behalf of the local team of specialist staff and the dedicated work of Speech and Language Therapists throughout the United Kingdom.
