She is very supportive as a supervisor – not only in terms of my clinical work and career goals, but she also takes an interest in how I am personally and outside work. Always feel like she is there to fight my corner if required!
Esther has been supervising a community trainee this rotation. Despite not being a community paediatrician herself, she has rapidly realised potential training issues and has raised these issues promptly and escalated appropriately. This has already resulted in changes being made, with increasing consultant supervision and longer time allocated for follow up – benefiting not just her trainee but all others currently in community. She has also taken it upon herself to arrange a dedicated neonatal simulation rota, with which she is heavily involved.
