Kelly Horlock

Nominated for Junior Nurse of the Year Award

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

“Kelly has fully integrated herself into the CAU team and demonstrated enormous development personally and professionally. She embraces new challenges and is always willing to help others. She is a great advocate for her patients, wanting the best for them, and has the potential to develop into a great nurse!
Kelly recently joined CAU and she has fit in so well with the whole team, its like she has always been part of it.

She is always happy to learn and is the 1st one to jump into teaching sessions that are held. Nothing is ever too much for this lady, she will help everyone who needs it.
Her presence is always a warm and welcoming to both patients and colleagues. I always enjoy coming to work when I know Kelly is on.

Kelly is an excellent team player, and goes over and beyond to help others. Kelly always displays outstanding level of best practice, and works safely. Although Kelly is very knowledgeable, she has never been reluctant to go out of her comfort zone at times to learn, and broaden her skills further. Kelly is also an outstanding team leader; she manages her time/team efficiently to ensure the patients/families are safe and given the best standard of care.
Kelly is hard working and always smiling. She is very professional and stays calm in busy situations, it is lovely to have Kelly on board as a permanent member of CAU.

Kelly has excelled in her first year as a newly qualified nurse, her knowledge and skills are that of a much more experienced nurse. Her kind nature comes across to her patients and she has the skills to adapt to challenging situations, she is a pleasure to work with and I believe she will go far in her career.”
