Hospital Heroes

Our first doctor hero

Dr Jan Prejbisz is the consultant students go to for advice and support as they know he'll take time to help them. Jan was nominated for the August award by a whole team of admiring staff - many of whom were there to cheer him on at the presentation.

Twenty years ago, Jan was almost sent back to his native Poland when his study visa ran out. A chance meeting with consultant oncologist Dr Anne Robinson secured him a job here - and he's been with us ever since.

Jan is always willing to fill in where needed and he readily acts as a Polish interpreter for patients and families where necessary.

And, adds his glowing citation: "Jan never complains and has great patient feedback. All have agreed that he is a pleasure to work for and with."
