Thanks a Bunch Alison!
This week’s Thanks a bunch went to Nurse Practitioner Alison Corcoran. She was nominated by Healthcare Support Worker, Rebecca Ashton for her commitment, passion and support to her patients, their families and her colleagues.
Alison has worked with children with additional needs for many years. She has worked in specialist inclusive learning centres (SILC) and has been a great support to many parents over these years. Some of these parents now return to the clinic and remember Alison and are so happy to see her. Alison is committed to providing the patients and parents with the best possible care and advice.” She always goes the extra mile and often thinks outside the box to adapt the care plan to meet the child's needs.
Alison is always supportive of her colleagues and helps to support them when needed and is a never-ending fountain of knowledge. She has recently supported and advised nursing students during their placements with the team. Not only does Alison care for her patients but she's also a great support to her elderly parents whilst juggling the daily demands of her day job and has recently become a first time Grandma to a gorgeous little girl!
Rebecca commented that, “Alison is a shining example for staff to aspire to as she actively demonstrates the Trust’s Values.”
Bryan Machin, Executive Director of Finance and Resources, surprised Alison at Wortley Beck Health Centre to present her with the Thanks a Bunch award. He said, “I want to recognise all your hard work and efforts and thank you on behalf of the organisation. It’s very well deserved.”
Alison is acknowledged for demonstrating the Trust behaviours of: Caring for our patients, Making the best decisions, Leading by example, Caring for one another, Adapting to change and delivering improvements, Working together, and Finding solutions
