Nominee's story :
During the covid lockdown Jackie worked full time in her role, and then did extra shifts at weekends handing out gloves and hand gel to ensure patients and visitors were kept safe. During this time she became a cheerful greeting to people coming into the front entrance and kept their spirits up with her caring empathetic nature. Some visitors sought her out especially to brighten up their day. One elderly man was particularly isolated, and Jackie went out of her way to ensure he had everything he needed in the home, and was able to keep himself safe. She has since checked in on him numerous times, and he is delighted to now call her a friend.
Since then she has assisted when a person suffered a medical episode in the hospital entrance, calling for help and ensured the person received the best of care , whilst keeping the situation calm for bystanders. She is always the first to offer assistance to any person that she sees needs any help. In her lunch break she often takes time out to guide patients to their destination, or point them in the right direction.
Earlier this year Jackie suffered a family loss, but ensured she kept her kind, loyal nature showing to her colleagues, and visitors. Her happy thoughtful nature means she is always willing to help others, no matter how she is feeling herself. She has maintained her empathetic caring side despite her sadness at her loss , and is extremely well thought of by staff and visitors to her department. She is a true asset to the trust .
