October's Hospital Hero - Maggie Woolard

31 October 2013

Hospital Heroes

October's Hospital Hero is breast unit healthcare assistant, Maggie Woolard.

Maggie Woolard doesn't just shine as a healthcare assistant on the breast unit - she spends an awful lot of her own time fundraising for the department and promoting the important work it does.

Maggie is the latest inspirational member of our staff to be awarded a monthly Hospital Hero award, which she collected from non-executive director Dr Qadir Bakhsh, MBE.

Maggie's support, encouragement and dedication is truly admirable and she is a real credit to the breast unit, said clinical nurse specialist Laura Palmer, who nominated her for the award.

"She continually shows compassion, empathy and a sense of responsibility and has a very good relationship with all members of the team."
