I nominated Dawn for organising and sorting the new working areas at the Orchards.She has supported the CRHT manager (whose team used to be located at the Orchards and moved due to pandemic) in organising, clearing and arranging all the old equipment and lockers to new homes. She has worked so hard on this and it has not been a small feat! Well done Dawn and THANK YOU!
Jim has been an invaluable support to me as I have tried to set up a new Non-Medical Prescribers (NMPs) Declaration system on SolNet. This new automated system replaces the old NMP Annual Appraisal system and allows our NMPs to complete their yearly declaration much easier/faster allowing them to concentrate on their clinical duties. Jim has worked with Suzi Graves (NMP Clinical Lead) and myself (TEAMWORK) over the last few months to get this system up and running and has always found time (and patience/RESPECTFUL) to explain the processes involved and help with the technical applications. We wanted to get this new system up and running for from April/May and even though Jim had limited time (due to being redeployed for Covid) he went the extra mile to ensure we could roll this new system out on time (ACCOUNTABILITY). Jim appreciated that I had limited knowledge of the technical/IT aspect of SolNet and always found the time to attend MS Teams Meetings to guide me through. Jim continues to provide ongoing ad-hoc training now to ensure that our NMP SolNet 2 page is up and running by September.. Suzi and I couldn't have completed this important project without Jim's expertise and hard work and we feel a BIG THANK YOU is justified.
Dr Christine has been the most wonderful of support for us throughout the programme. She is always very willing to be called in at late notice when staffing levels have been worrying and will always stay longer than her designated end time. When we had an issue with patients being vaccinated outside of the licence, she was very willing to be called in to prescribe additional doses. She is a complete joy to have on any shift and has the most caring attitude towards patients and staff. Our programme at Hamble House is all the better for having her involved.
Emma has been our Locality Lead Nurse she has developed very quickly into an amazing manager .She is supports our staff across numerous sites in the North, whilst always having time to listen to staffs' personal and work challenges. She never fails to find solutions to problems/ issues and has a calm demeanour... Emma has managed to juggle two high demanding Band 7 roles for a time, earlier this year, to ensure that the service has rum optimally, and she seemed to do this in her stride. We, as a service, are extremely lucky to have her as our manager, as she is hard working and dedicated to looking after her staffs'; wellbeing, the efficient running of the service and, most importantly, our patients. Thank you Emma.
Janine is a wonderful manager who puts time and effort into all colleagues no matter how busy she may be herself. Janine goes above and beyond and is one of the most approachable and kind managers I have ever had. Janine has moved into the Performance Team and has been doing a brilliant job with us all and we would like to say, THANK YOU.
I think as a manager she is incredibly kind patient and understanding. I am a new starter, she made me feel very valued and welcome.
Katie Watson and her colleagues Kristian Budini her colleagues, Katie Watson , Jocelyn Duckham , Leslie Aston and Jo Payne are Paediatric therapists who always go the extra mile for the children and young people they support. I have recently had the pleasure of working with this team of fantastic people in looking after one of my patients who has been diagnosed with a serious neurodegenerative condition . On speaking to this little girls mother , about the diagnosis, she told me that all of the therapy team involved had supported her and her little girl above and beyond expectations , Making a very difficult time more bearable.
PCAT was developed as the result of hospital discharge guidelines during the first wave of the COVID pandemic. The team were brought together initially as redeployed staff and now permanently as an integrated health and social care team. They have developed a whole new service, processes and pathways to ensure that patients within the local acute trust are supported into the most suitable environment as quickly as possible. The team have been put under incredible pressure to meet ever growing demands, as well as supported staff who have been redeployed during wave 2 and who had never worked in this area. The team have achieved amazing results, reducing the medically optimised numbers and well as bed days lost significantly, all resulting in a far better experience for the people of Portsmouth. The team deserves recognition as they are the silent service that patients may only ever see once, but who work incredibly hard to support them at often traumatic times
