Works at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust

“Katy is new to our trust but she has made an incredible impression. She is compassionate, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Always willing to help explain and teach to all those her junior no matter their profession. She is approachable and has implemented great motivational ideas around the ward areas. She is great asset to the paediatric team.

Since Katy joined RCHT she has brought a real positive energy into the team. She is passionate and dedicated, hardworking and conscientious, and is a real asset to both medical and nursing teams. Katy definitely has the drive and determination to be our speciality lead in the future, and I look forward to working with her in this role! Katy- you are awesome!

Katy is a fairly new Consultant to the RCHT Paed team and boy has she made an impact. She is a complete breath of fresh air! Katy’s enthusiasm is very contagious, and she has uplifted the whole team. Firstly Katy is an amazing Doctor and is immensely knowledgeable in all aspects of Paediatrics but especially in her speciality of Cardiology. She is excellent at the bedside with all children and their families and takes time to explain their illness to them. In an emergency Katy is a cool head and decisive in her actions . She supports the whole of the team at all times and makes suggestions and changes to improve team dynamics and also everyone’s mental health, unfortunately COVID has put a stop to the regular social get together she organised. Katy is really enthusiastic about teaching and encourages others to teach as well and enables that to happen. Katy communicates really well with everyone in the Multidisciplinary team and treats all equally and with respect. We are so pleased Katy has come to RCHT!”
