Ellie Harding

Nominated for Junior Nurse of the Year Award 2021

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

What a breath of fresh air Ellie is, always greets you with the worlds biggest cheesy smile! she is fun, happy and an energetic nurse who clearly loves her job. She has outstanding interaction and communication with her patients and families and they all love how friendly and compassionate she is, always advocating for the best care for her patients. Ellie always seeks new opportunities to better herself but has no qualms in sharing her knowledge and experience too! I can see Ellie progressing to become an inspirational leader and a valuable member of the senior nursing team as she progresses herself! She is a great team player and this enhances the productivity of the whole team, nursing and medical staff alike.

Ellie is brilliant fun to work with. Even when CAU looks like it’s about to explode and overflowing with patients, she always has a smile on her face and strives to deliver the best care for her patients. She has clinical skills beyond her years of training (I thought she was more qualified than she is!) and is always keen to get stuck in and learn. Patients and their families absolutely love her, as do all of the medical staff. I don’t think she realises how good she is and she is also an excellent leader, despite being so junior a nurse. I have no doubt she will go on to achieve plenty in her nursing career (just please don’t leave CAU because you’re such an asset to the team!). Thank you Ellie!
Wizzing around the unit at 100mph, Ellie is a ray of sunshine that works so hard to make sure her patient’s have the very best care. Ellie goes above and beyond for her patients and supporting her colleagues wherever she can, she is already a fantastic staff nurse and a big asset to CAU.

Ellie has recently started working on Cau, and has had some challenging shifts. Demonstrates caring and thoughtfulness towards patients parents and staff even after a hectic shift. A good balance of knowledge and asking for help when unsure of patients/protocol on the unit.
Always puts a smile on my face.
