Nominee's story :
Mel works for our business ops team and is an integral part of projects being delivered and sustained.
Earlier this year, Mel was able to offer support to a quality improvement project in community nursing by quickly gaining a thorough understanding of the issues and how they can be managed. This involved liaising with key stakeholders in corporate areas and required strong communication and organisation skills. Without Mel’s support the project would not have progressed as quickly and successfully as it did.
Mel is always willing to help. Recently, business ops support was needed to assist with the staff flu campaign. Mel did not hesitate to step in and review the action plan, prioritise all actions required, working closely with the clinician heading the campaign.
Mel is currently having treatment for cancer. This is said in a very understated way because this is how Mel treats the disease. She works fulltime and fits in treatment and support around working.
I would love Mel to win an award as an unsung hero as this is what she is to me.
