“Hannah is always happy, not only is she is a joy to work with I feel safe with her decisions, she involves the team as a whole and is a great team player. I’m always pleased to see she is on shift with me.

Hannah is an absolute star! Her clinical knowledge and skills are outstanding and she never fails to give 100% to the children and families she is caring for each day. When Hannah is on shift the whole department feels calm no matter how crazy it actually is! What makes Hannah stand out is her caring nature, and her enthusiasm towards supporting her colleagues. She has championed many projects to ensure all members of the team feel included and valued in the department, and to promote positive attitudes and wellbeing within her peers. This is all above and beyond her daily role and makes a huge difference to the team.

Always helpful, hardworking, kind, supportive.

I have been privileged to watch Hannah grow from an SHO to a confident and exceptional registrar. Hannah is a pleasure to work with and her passion for paediatrics is obvious with her always ensuring a gold standard of care for her patients and their families.

Whenever Hannah is on shift you know you are in a safe pair of hands, she is very supportive of the nursing staff, if the nursing team are ever concerned or worried about a patient Hannah will never question or dismiss their concerns. She is a fantastic teacher to both nursing staff/students and medical staff/students alike.

Hannah is one of the registrars that you know you can rely on especially on CAU when the busy times hit and the CAU chaos begins! She is kind, caring and always brings a sense of calm to any situation! A fantastic member of the paediatric team and always makes everyone feel welcome!

No matter if you’re having a bad day Hannah will always make the day better with a cheerful smile, a friendly chat or a brew! She is what teamwork is all about!

Hannah is absolutely amazing! Always hardworking, she is the most kind and approachable Registrar I have ever met. Nothing is too much trouble for her with both staff, patients and families. Always supportive. The way Hannah is with both patients and parents is outstanding, taking time to make them comfortable and safe. It’s always lovely to know when Hannah is on shift!

Hannah is fully committed to her role as a Paediatric Reg. She is knowledgeable and always a reassuring presence to patients, family and staff alike. Hannah is a massive support on Wildgoose particularly when some of our more Challenging patients behaviour escalates. Hannah has a real wellbeing centred focused approach and has got involved with a number of projects e.g. the level 12 newsletter. Hannah has a real gift at being able to lead in a team situation but also is very happy to get stuck in and let others lead. Hannah gets alongside each and every family she is caring for meeting their needs in an appropriate way. Hannah always allows time for families to feel listened to which is so important. Hannah is an excellent role model to all staff on Level 12, I feel Hannah is approachable and always happy to teach as she goes to more junior staff members. Thank you for all you do to keep L12 going Hannah, you are a STAR!!!
