Nominated for The Debbie Eadie Award for Advance Nurse Practice
Works at Royal Cornwall Hospitals
Sarah is hugely experienced and knowledgeable in the management of neonates and running of the neonatal unit.
Her role in the acute management of unwell neonates is invaluable
She has also been an incredible role model both in traits that lend themselves towards managing an acute situation and also offers invaluable teaching to juniors.
She is always lovely to work with.
Sarah is the most professional, caring and fantastic ANNP known to man.
Sarah deserves the Debbie Eadie ANP award as she is SIMPLY THE BEST.
Sarah goes above and beyond her role as senior ANNP. She gives so much of her life to the services of our NNU, Maternity, community and wider hospital.
A committed Sim instructor, NLS and GIC instructor, there will be very few, if any, midwives and neonatal staff in Cornwall who don’t know her name.
She works with the CDOP panel, the HSIB panel. She runs the ANNP rota. She leads the ANNP team and trainee APs to name just a few extras to her role.
Recently Sarah and her colleague won a bid to provide NNU staff training for 12 of the first TRiM practitioners in the SWODN. She says the bidding contest was the most stressful experience she’d ever been through and saving lives was a doddle compared to it!
There is very little that goes under Sarah’s radar. Always professional she leads by example. Oh and yes, she is a real human who is also influenced by the hefty emotions that come with attending stressful deliveries and neonatal traumatic situations.
Sarah has touched the lives of thousands of families. she has the most smiley disposition. Staff are visibly lifted when they see Sarah coming on duty, because they know they’re in safe hands and that their shift will have some laughs in it. I think she’d be very rich if she was given £1 for every time she had heard the word “”I’m so glad you’re on duty today””.
I speak for many colleagues when I say that without her there would be a massive hole in Truro Neonatal Unit.
For once Sarah, I will be your wing man any time!
Sarah is an inspirational leader and team member. She strives for and is an advocate for the highest quality care and is a fundamental member of the team in relation to maintaining and developing the cohesion felt on the unit between medical and nursing teams. She sets a fantastic example to all in her interaction with patients and their families. You bring so much to the team Sarah and this nomination is to let you know how much all your hard work is appreciated.
