Hospital Heroes

The winner of our Hospital Heroes monthly award for March 2019 is Wayne Elmes, Healthcare Assistant, Endoscopy.

"Wayne has taken the ordering and management of stock on as an extended part of his role. Since taking on the role he has completely transformed the organisation of stock within the department. He has reviewed and audited the whole of the endoscopy inventory.

He has devised and constructed storage systems out of recycled materials to ensure our storage complies with infection control and health and safety guidelines. Wayne has formed excellent relationships with suppliers and has shopped around and negotiated trials of equipment to ensure the department is using not only the best but also the best value for money equipment, negotiating orders on consignment and on standing order.

Wayne has created a future proof system of working within the department. He is training other HCA's to continue his work and has developed an excellent inventory management system to ensure this is maintained.
