"My chemo nurses stayed on beyond their shift"

I am receiving chemotherapy treatment at Notts City Hospital. On a Monday in March 2015 they were extremely busy - staff shortages etc and consequently running late.
The nurses were scheduled to finish work at 8pm but it became clear that it would be 9:30pm before the treatment was complete.
They did have other options - admitting me to a Ward, resuming treatment the following day etc (both would have given me personal problems) - but two nurses (Juliette and Sarah) chose to work on instead. Despite having worked long and very busy shifts both remained cheerful, upbeat and professional.
I am very grateful to them both. This is representative of this team.
