UHNM – Trainer & Trainee COVID Response Awards

UHNM’s post-graduate team have been busy rewarding colleagues who ‘stepped up’ during the pandemic. There was an overwhelming response to the plea for nominations and trainers and trainees from across the Trust have been recognised.

More than 20 nominations were received in the trainee teams category, with a further 15 individual trainees nominated for their hard work and dedication during the last five months.

Dr Will Carroll, Consultant Paediatrician, said: “The last four months have been extraordinary and we wanted to do something to recognise our trainee doctors and congratulate them for their immense efforts in supporting the hospital.  I have been overwhelmed by the response, particularly from our consultants, who have expressed how grateful they have been to the teams.”

He added: “Our trainees, together with FY1 medical students, gave up their time and came in early and they deserve to be given recognition for the quality patient care they have been able to provide at such a challenging time.”

Dr Prabhjoyt Kler (pictured below) received numerous nominations and was recognised for her work ethic and compassion.

She said: “I would like to thank every person who took the time to nominate me for this award. I am amazed by the kindness that has been shown. I am only a small part of the amazing teams I have worked with and they have been inspirational in their efforts to get through this pandemic. It has been a pleasure to work alongside so many fantastic colleagues and consultants who are the true winners of this award.”
