Katrina Bluett

Nominated for Junior Nurse of the Year Award

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

“Always smiling, kind helpful and goes the extra mile for her colleagues and the babies and their parents on the ward.
Katrina is a valued member of the team here on NICU and often goes above and beyond her role as a nurse when looking after not only the infants and their families, but also her fellow colleagues.

She demonstrates genuine empathy and care towards all and is thorough in all aspects of the care which she provides.

Katrina has blossomed as a nurse since she came to work on the unit. She has a wonderful calming manner and always goes the extra mile for patients, families and colleagues alike. She is always the first person to speak up about something nice that can be done for another – eg socially distanced tea parties pre maternity leave or special birthdays. She understands the difficulties that students and new members of staff undergo and has become a wonderful student supervisor.”
