Julie Lightfoot

Nominated for Non-Clinical Staff of the Year Award

Works at Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

“Julie is a very talented individual who works way beyond her position of NNU assistant. Julie is thorough, organised and efficient and can trouble shoot any issue. Her skills are not just practical but hugely supportive to families and the whole neonatal team. She listens carefully and is aware of what is happening holistically on the unit. If there is an upset parent or a subdued parent she notices and brings a cup of tea and a listening ear. When families are deeply distressed she is both practically and emotionally present.

Julie has trained as a mental health first aider to support her colleagues which she does empathetically and kindly. Julie is an absolute asset and also has a wicked sense of humour which is the icing on the cake.”
