Congratulations to our STAR award winners:
Congratulations Victoria Ibeziako who is a winner of a Bronze STAR Award. Victoria was nominated by a patients relative who said "I would love to nominate Victoria for a Star Award after her recent care of my little sister. Victoria spent time with my sister explaining each medication before it was given (via IV) and explained what each one would do including any possible side effects.
At all times she kept smiling which reassured a scared and worried patient, every time she passed her bed she would check in to ensure my sister had enough fluids and they even got the chance to chat about the book my sister was reading. Being in hospital can be scary and lonely with no visitors allowed, so Victoria’s friendly and professional approach was much needed in a time of need."
Congratulations to Gemma Bull, Superintendent Radiographer who was presented with a Silver Star Award yesterday. Gemma was nominated by Felicity Canning, who said "Gemma took on a new role as the Superintendent Radiographer for Breast Imaging services. This was not only a new role for Gemma but a completely new post. Gemma had been a long standing member of the team and became Superintendent in March.
Since taking on the role Gemma has shown real commitment to work through the issues facing the service. She has worked with a smile on her face in difficult times and has worked consistently to get the clinical cover and much needed support for the service this is not an easy task as there is a national shortage of breast radiologists. As a result, patients can now be referred into the breast one stop service with minimal delay which is a big improvement. Importantly Gemma is providing the support for staff working in this busy service.
Gemma deserves a STAR award in recognition for her excellent work. Her work is also recognised by both the Divisional Director of Operations and the Divisional Medical Director, Professor Sriprasad."
