Tania Winchester, who works as a Matron’s Assistant in the Emergency Department at Conquest Hospital, has won our ‘Hero of the Month’ award.

Trust Chairman, Steve Phoenix with Tania Winchester

Tania was nominated for this award by Donna Forrow, Sister in the Emergency Department. Donna said: “Since I started my new role in the Emergency Department a couple of months ago, Tania has been my point of contact with numerous emails and face to face questions. She always has a smile on her face, is willing to help and nothing is too much for her.

“Tania has worked in the Emergency Department for 29 years and she still seems just as enthusiastic and helpful as I’m sure she was when she first started. I can’t thank her enough.”

Trust Chairman, Steve Phoenix presented Tania with a certificate and a love to shop voucher.

The ‘Hero of the Month’ award recognises the great work of colleagues who demonstrate how our values are lived out as part of everyday working life.

Each month, members of staff nominate their colleagues for this award. Eight Divisional heroes of the month are then selected by divisional leads, and these nominations go forward to be selected as our overall ‘Hero of the Month’ by the Trust Executive.
