Connie said: “Michelle is a well-valued member of the team and consistently goes above and beyond to support our wellbeing, which is a great morale boost in challenging times. Michelle organised a wonderful celebration for the teams for the Jubilee, demonstrating true respect and compassion. Staff working across the bank holiday weekend all commented on how wonderful this was, enabling a true sense of positive team working, which in turn supports the care that the team provide to patients in the community.”

Susan said: “Michelle has worked closely with the teams to embed restorative clinical supervision into practice, which in turn benefits the wellbeing of all staff and improves the quality of service.  She is always cheerful and ready to listen and support when needed. Michelle is a lovely person who really deserves to be Hero of the month.”

Joe Chadwick-Bell, Chief Executive, presented Michelle with a certificate and a Love2Shop 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.
