Cath is amazing with families and has such a reassuring nature, not only that but she is always so supportive of the nursing staff and is always there to listen to any concerns.

Dr Derry’s kindness and support is exceptional. She is providing teaching sessions to help improve nurses and medical staff’s knowledge about how to manage certain conditions. You could ask Dr Derry about anything and she would be happy to answer. Dr Derry has lots of time for patients and families who have been given some life changing news. Dr Derry care’s about patients, nurses, ward clerks and even the cleaning staff, she makes everyone feel at ease and always asks if they are OK.
