Employee of the Month – congratulations Julie!

Tuesday April 3, 2018

Congratulations to head and neck clinical nurse specialist Julie Emery who has been named Employee of the Month, winning £50 and an invitation to the trust’s Patient First STAR Awards later this year.

Human Resources director Jennie Shore presented Julie with her certificate in front of colleagues in the Maxillofacial Unit at St Richard’s on Monday (26 March).

Julie was nominated by Macmillan dietitian Carolyn Stapely who described how her colleague displays compassion and empathy to patients and their loved ones and how this was particularly demonstrated in the superb support she gave to a family whose relative had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly following their operation.

Cancer Services manager Tim Hutson said he and matron Nikki Dibley fully endorsed the nomination, saying: “Julie regularly goes above and beyond for her patients. She is the sort of nurse that we would all like to be looked after by.”

Nikki added, “Julie is an exemplary nurse… the exact type of nurse you would feel in safe, caring hands with.”
