Emma Skedgell

Nominated for Healthcare & Nursing Assistant of the Year Award

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

“Emma is always kind and considerate towards others. She is so hardworking and is always willing to help you out in any way possible. When I started as a newly qualified nurse last year she was always supportive of my learning and is always willing to answer any questions or guide appropriately where needed. She always ensures her patients and families are looked after to the best of her abilities and will always go above and beyond.

Emma is a fantastic member of the team. She is hugely self-motivated and has mentored and supported staff and families alike to an extremely high standard over the years. She is a major part of our unit achieving stage 2 of the Baby Friendly Initiative this year. She is now undertaking a nursing apprenticeship hoping to join us as a fully qualified staff nurse in the future – we will be extremely lucky to have her.”
