“Absolute legend – he is the Guru of all things neonatal! Chris is a breath of fresh air, he is highly knowledgably, dedicated and passionate about Neonatal care, striving for the best for our Cornish families. He is a fantastic, approachable teacher to all, parents, staff, nursing and medical, if there is ever an opportunity for education Chris is there to demonstrate his skills.
His care and compassion for her colleagues, families and their babies is demonstrated on a daily basic. Even during the most busy of shifts, Chris will always take the time to…usually kneeling down to be at the same height as parents, update and go through things with parents in such a calm, methodical way, using his ‘drawing skills’ as required.
Chris is an inspiration for us all, encompassing the Trust and RCPCH values. Chris is an inspirational and supportive member of the Neonatal team at Truro. He has incredible clinical skills and knowledge which he is never too busy to share with others and encourages all members of the team to strive for excellence. His door is always open to support colleagues and his interaction with families is admirable. His attitude to his work and dedication to the unit makes him an aspirational role model to all and he’s just generally a lovely person to be around and work with. Every workplace needs a Chris Bell. “
