Works at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust

For being the most committed nurse and matron I’ve ever had the pleasure to know and work with. Dealing with the problems and stresses of not only our ward but the whole of child health and NNU. Always coming up with a plan and being there for your nursing team in the toughest of times.

She’s not scared to get her hands dirty, even donning an apron to strip beds when needed, or afraid to stand up for us when dealing with complex issues or patients. Truly a one of a kind Nurse and a once in a lifetime Matron.
