Helen Channer

Nominated for Paediatric Consultant Hero

Works at Torbay & South Devon NHS Foundation Trust

“Helen is the most supportive Consultant I have ever worked with. She is always looking out for her colleagues and particularly the junior members of the team, who she will always do her best to advocate for.

Helen works so hard to put children and families at the centre of her care. She has contributed and supported families and staff in her role as child death lead putting into place support for nursing and medical staff after a very difficult year. She goes above and beyond.

I know Helen won this award last year, but she is still wonderful! Her commitment to involving trainees in her specialist areas of work e.g. child death goes above and beyond and she always has time to stop for careers advice or to give constructive feedback. She cares about the whole paediatric (Medical, nursing, admin…) team and works to ensure everyone is supported through challenging cases. She is a pleasure to work with.

Thank you Helen for all that you do to help improve paediatric training in the Peninsula. It was a joy working with you last year and you are an inspiration and role model to junior colleagues.”
