Nominee's story :
John's department has experienced multiple changes and acute staff shortages over the last few years resulting in an extremely challenging workload. He has demonstrated outstanding resilience, going above and beyond to maintain the SQL service to meet demands throughout this time. He and his colleagues work steadily in the background to provide essential IT reporting systems, which in turn allow medical teams to record and monitor patient care. He has had to deal with constantly changing systems, changing staff and at times, no available support. As the SQL service is not directly patient facing, it is often overlooked and I believe its vital to recognise the steady and unrelenting work that John and his team do behind the scenes. In addition to this he shows a supportive and empathic attitude to other team members, ensuring kindness to each other and staff well being is a priority. His dedication to providing an excellent NHS service is of benefit to patients and staff and I believe it deserves to be recognised, therefore I am nominating John Gartside in the SQL Team for an award as an unsung hero.
