Fantastic colleague with patient wellbeing at the focus of everything she does. Communicates excellently with patients and colleagues alike and is an absolute pleasure to work with.
I have worked with Emily for the last 4 months as a member of the General/Emergency Surgery team at Queens Hospital. Throughout that time she has been great to work with it. She's always organized, thorough and goes above and beyond the duty of care for her patients. As an FY1 doctor I have regularly turned to Emily for advice and guidance during difficult clinical situations and her knowledge and experience has been incredibly helpful. She keeps up to date with all of her patients and despite having to look after an entire ward I'm always incredibly impressed by how well she manages to know a large number of patients and their ongoing care needs. She has been a pleasure to work with.
Emily is a brilliant colleague to work with, kind and caring and also competent. She's well liked by patients and staff alike! She's a great advocate for her patients, noticing changes in vitals- alerting senior staff and doctors, brilliant in communication with staff and patients as well as being very keen and down to earth. A brilliant nurse!
I have just spent a few days as an inpatient in Ocean B ward at Queens. Emily was in charge of the night shifts while I was there and looked after me along with her team. Nothing was too much trouble for Emily, and even when I was not confident in all the medications that were prescribed for me, Emily took the time to explain the benefits of them and suggest the best way that I could help myself to recover. Although Emily is the Sister in charge, she is always there and very hands on when it comes to administering medications, dispensing kindness and offering sound advice. I cannot thank Emily and the team that she so ably leads and teaches enough. We need more Emilys in the NHS, she is the very best role model and shining example of everything a nurse and leader should be.
