Hospital Heroes

November's Hospital Hero is Canvey Outpatients domestic, Pamela O'Halloran.

Pamela O'Halloran is not just the domestic at Canvey Outpatients. Having worked in the department for 15 years, her colleagues say that what she doesn't know about Canvey Outpatients really isn't worth knowing!

Pamela joined the hospital in 1997 working as a domestic on Gordon Hopkins and Blenheim wards; two years later she moved permanently to Canvey Outpatients.

Described as the 'mum of the clinic' by receptionist Cathy Worboys, Pamela is dedicated to keeping the department spotlessly clean and welcoming for everyone. For staff she makes it more than just a work place, organising collections for birthdays and often bringing in treats for the whole team to share. She also covers reception duties if needed and is always happy to help patients with queries and problems; nothing is too much trouble.

Outpatients supervisor, Linda Weston, said: "It never ceases to amaze us just how she manages to make the building so clean and shiny. Every department should have a Pam!"
