Yolanda Alins-Sahun

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

Yolanda is a breath of fresh air in Derriford’s Paediatric department. She is vivacious, funny and charismatic and is a fantastic colleague to work with. She goes out of her way to encourage and support her junior staff and the wider nursing and MDT team, and always brings enthusiasm and enjoyment to the shift with her.

She is noticeably present and supportive of departmental teaching and journal club and is always one of the first to volunteer to provide training and education to the Paediatric Trainees. Her lessons are always engaging and useful, such as “”hands on”” diabetic pump training.

She is keen to improve and develop the service and the training in Plymouth and has a fantastically bold and enthusiastic style, which will serve the department well.
