Employee of the Month & Team of the Month – March Winners
David Clarke was nominated for our non-clinical employee of the month and was awarded with his certificate and voucher from CEO, Dr Andy Jones. David has managed his normal workload with that of ensuring we have sufficient PPE throughout the hospital. Going the extra mile he has made sure essential supply chains remain open to avoid Woodland running short of anything. David has also helped our NHS colleagues at KGH when he can demonstrating the Ramsay value of people caring for people. Through this difficult time David has put others first, maintained a positive ‘can do’ attitude and been able to keep a good sense of humour helping us all with a smile.
Terry Darnell received nominations for ‘clinical employee of the month’ for two different reasons: Terry went the extra mile to ensure a patient’s procedure could go ahead. Secondly; despite being in isolation for 14 days Terry worked from home and on top of this took the new Senior Clinical on-call phone call during this whole period, taking all staff sickness/absence calls and provided the out of hours advice and support for the ward and Hospital. This was during a period of heightened anxiety for staff. Another job well done!
The Heads of Departments and Team Leaders – Team of the Month. They have notably supported their teams and the wider Hospital during a period of unrest for all staff and patients. They have provided leadership and support, putting their staff first, to ensure they maintained a safe environment. During this time there have been lots of changes of direction at short notice. This has been delivered with good humour along the way.
