August's Hospital Hero - Dr Jan Prejbisz
01 August 2012
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
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."
