Vanda Beattie

Nominated for Healthcare & Nursing Assistant of the Year Award

Works at Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

“Vanda is amazing with every child that enters the paediatric outpatient department, especially great with the eating disorder patients. She is very approachable and loving, making their experience much less daunting. The teenagers love her! It’s incredible how she never forgets a patient or the stories they’ve told her.

She certainly inspires me by the outstanding care and compassion she had for others, not just the patents but their families as well as staff members. I have found A LOT that when I work in the outpatient department, children and their parents are so sad to see that Vanda isn’t working today. This demonstrates just how worthy Vanda is for this award.
