Sophie is one of the only few drivers on my team and so is often asked to drive about on lots of occasions throughout the day. Sophie takes everything in her stride and always has a happy demeanour about her. Sophie always remains calm and collected no matter what the situation but can also speak her mind when the need arises.

I would like to express compliments for Flo, for covering a ward of 14 patients by herself as a preceptor nurse due to nursing staff absence. Flo has managed the ward incredibly well with confidence and competence, she has managed an admission and several incidents over the weekend and has shown resilience to such a high standard.
