Transforming the working culture
In this time of doom and gloom stories and all the negative press about the NHS, it makes such a pleasant change to talk to a client about a hugely positive news item. Yesterday, we filmed a matron and her team at the North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust. She’s just won the national accolade of ‘Nurse Leader of the Year’ at the 2017 Nursing Times Awards for her inspirational work and achievements over the last two years in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the hospital where she has transformed the working culture by helping the ICU’s 98 nurses from 38 different countries to work as a single, cohesive team to improve patient care.
I’ve worked in the NHS recruitment and employer branding field for more than 20 years and I don’t think in all that time that I’ve met an individual and indeed an entire team who were so positive and enthusiastic about their colleagues and their unit – it really was uplifting and a privilege to be invited in to meet them all and shoot the video.
Huge congratulations from all at WDAD to Gillan Belfon-Johnson and all in the ICU – read her story here (video to follow!).
