Nominated for Junior Nurse of the Year Award 2021
Works at Torbay & South Devon NHS Foundation Trust
Gemma has only been qualified for a year, but due to the pressures on the ward at the moment she has found herself being in charge of the shift on many occasions and has also looked after very complex children – both these things would terrify much more experienced nurses!
Gemma is always so very keen to learn and takes on new challenges willingly. She will actively seek out new skills to learn.
Gemma is also a keen team player, and will always ask other members of staff if she can help them with their workloads.
Gemma qualified last year and what a year it has been. Working during a very busy period and having to learn quickly during some difficult times. Gemma has shown such a team working attitude, looking after some very complex patients and supporting other team members throughout. Gemma is a brilliant brilliant, goes above and beyond for patients to provide the best care.
