Hospital Heroes

November’s Hospital Hero is paediatric practice educator, Susan Cornwell.

Susan has spent an enormous amount of time - outside of her normal working hours - to prepare our cohort of Italian paediatric nurses for practice.

As well as an extensive induction Susan has gone the extra mile to arrange social activities in order to network the nurses into the local community, including introducing them to fellow Italian ex-pats.

Susan was nominated by paediatric assessment unit manager, Sophie Dudley and Neptune ward manager, Claire Scott who said: "The induction that Susan has produced is extremely thorough, well thought out and well planned. 

"She's put in many extra hours to ensure that it is comprehensive and feedback from staff has been extremely positive.

"We were recently contacted by another Italian nurse who has applied to work at Southend after hearing about Susan's induction and the support on offer.

"We're delighted that her effort and commitment has been recognised."
