November's Hospital Hero - Linda Simpson

Hospital Heroes

November's hospital hero is cognitive behavioual therapist, Linda Simpson.

Linda was nominated for her swift, professional and empathetic actions when, during a therapy session with one of her patients, she identified a risk at home. Linda unhesitatingly went above and beyond her normal responsibilities to ensure that the patient remained safe and was given appropriate therapeutic support - amply demonstrating our values of Everybody Matters, Everything Counts and Everyone's Responsible.

Despite the additional demands this placed on her, Linda continued to care for her other patients in her usual competent and caring way, as well as fulfilling her clinical work and ongoing support for colleagues.

Linda is, said her nomination, 'self-motivated, highly professional and always places the needs of her patients as her utmost priority'.
