Rhea Toney

Works at Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

Rhea is a formidable Matron. She cares for every member of staff on Bramble – nurses, doctors, allied healthcare professionals, and support staff. I’m not quite sure how she manages to find the time to do everything that she does, and with such a wonderful smile! Totally respected by all, seeing her with patients is where she shines. An asset to anywhere, so I’m very pleased to have her working in Exeter.

Rhea is the absolutely gold standard of how a nurse should be. As a manager she always is looking how to improve the unit and the wellbeing of staff and is always approachable when needed and fair in how she deals with any problems. She always has a smile on her face and is the absolute epitome of professionalism.

Is the rock of the paediatric ward. She is always available to staff on bramble ward and no request ever seems to be too much for her. I have never seen her say a cross word, she has an admirable ability to remain calm in any situation.
