Nominated for Paediatric Senior Doctor Hero Award 2021
Jess has thrown herself into the deep end of Mental Health leadership during a pandemic. this is no mean feat given the surge of referrals for eating disorders in the last 12 months. She has embraced new ways of working, striving to achieve the best outcomes possible for a group of patients who are often highly distressed and at times resistant to care. She has helped steer a ship through choppy and uncertain waters, and has kept the best interests of her patients front and centre.
Jess has continued to build relationships with my CAMHS team, and has been available, approachable and helpful throughout. She deserves specific acknowledgement for her passion and enthusiasm in such a challenging clinical field.
Immense work and dedication in her work with young people with eating disorders as well as her contribution to PAU and helping the assessment unit run smoothly.
