September's Hospital Hero - Betsy Doxford

22 September 2013

Hospital Heroes

September's hospital hero is A&E staff nurse, Betsy Doxford.

Betsy's colleagues wanted her to have something tangible to show just how much they appreciate all she does. She is an excellent team player with a lovely bedside manner and is a passionate patient advocate. And she won't hesitate to put her own social life on the back burner when something needs doing in the department.

Betsy is also the cupcake queen, regularly baking delicious batches to sell in the department and raise funds for medical equipment. She and colleagues are currently raising funds for our new paediatric A&E unit.

Her nomination states: "Betsy is well-respected by all members of staff and is considered the treasure of the A&E department."
