Stella Carney

Works at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust

“Professional, and always calm and approachable. recognises when senior involvement is needed and seeks it out. Will do any job if it’s needed to help the team. Has worked with outside organisations to effect a change in behaviour of organisations so we no longer are the first place to put a child if they need a place of safety when there is no acute medical problem exists, improving the care of children with medical issues and ensuring nursing staff are not spending their time managing children with behaviour issues, instead of caring for sick children. She has shown great support for her staff and has made a real difference to the working environment on her ward.”
