‘Inspirational’ Yate nurse wins top award
District nurse Hazel Roddan has won the NHS 70th award for clinical excellence at an event organised by Sirona.
Judges described her as “inspirational”, and a “conscientious and dedicated nurse always going above and beyond”.
Bev Mason, the Locality manager for Severnvale and Yate won the Leadership Award, and Jason Broadley, a matron at Yate Minor Injuries Unit was highly commended in the same category.
Bev said: “It was a big surprise. I am honoured, pleased and delighted. It was totally unexpected.”
Karen Wilmot, an Occupational Therapy Lead from Bristol Community Health which covers South Gloucestershire, won a new award for staff working in children’s services. Judges said she has worked tirelessly to improve services, particularly for those with additional and complex needs.
Janet Rowse, Sirona care & health’s chief executive, said: “It is so important that we do take the opportunity to celebrate the astonishing achievements that are part of what make Sirona great. The Care Quality Commission inspectors said that “going above and beyond was just the norm in Sirona”. Our awards night demonstrated that this is still so true.”
