Hospital Heroes

February’s hospital hero is Rochford ward’s Leanne Griffiths

Since joining the heart and chest clinic as a new staff nurse last May, Leanne has been a brilliant help to patients needing a nebuliser. She has brought in a system to contact nearly 2,000 patients directly when their annual check is due and ward staff contact her directly when a nebuliser is needed for a patient being discharged.

Nominated by the whole heart and chest clinic staff, Leanne was praised for her 'great empathy for patients', for taking a real personal interest in them and their care and for 'making such a difference' to the department.
