Gill Etherington

Nominated for Non-Clinical Staff of the Year Award

Works at Torbay & South Devon NHS Foundation Trust

“Gill is my secretary, so of course I couldn’t do what I do without her help. Being a community Paediatrician, there is a huge amount of organisation, co ordination and administration involved in our work day to day. Gill is absolutely fantastic, she is organised and efficient, which is so essential, but beyond this, she is absolutely brilliant with patients and their families who she is often in communication with many times a day, fielding issues and being proactive.

She has a brilliant understanding and empathy with patients families. She makes my job possible and many other consultants alike. She always has a smile on her face and is a valued member of the non-clinical team, mentoring new admin staff and making them feel at home. Gill is brilliant, she really helped me find my feet as a new consultant. I felt really well supported and I’d love for her to get the recognition she deserves. Thank you Gill.”
