This month our congratulations go to Christine Kirkup & Mandy Grahamslaw who have been named joint-winners of December’s Star of the Month Award by the Executive Team for their outstanding contribution.

Christine and Mandy who work within Research and Development were nominated by Alison Harvey, and were recently awarded with a voucher for either an afternoon tea for two or a treat tray from The Hub from the QE Hospital as a token of appreciation for their fantastic effort.

Why Christine and Mandy are stars:

I received a phone call and then an email from a relative regarding his wife – “My wife fell in our local Aldi Supermarket (Cramlington), suffering a fractured pelvis. She had very limited movement directly after the fall and lay on her back in the chilled aisle section of the supermarket for more than 1.5 hours awaiting an ambulance, fortunately two nurses were in the Supermarket at the time. These two ladies stayed with my wife supporting until the arrival of the ambulance. My wife was in a lot of pain in her left leg, and Mandy spent the entire time sitting on the chilled floor supporting her leg, Christine also ensured my wife was comforted and never left her side throughout the long wait, constantly keeping her spirits up. I hope my commendations and gratitude will be related to these ladies as I feel they demonstrated the highest standard of nursing care when most needed.”

We’d like to congratulate Christine and Mandy for their fantastic work out in the community, going over and above. To nominate a Star, please visit the Star Awards area on StaffZone.
