Consultant Johnson Amu has received a Going The Extra Mile award.
Mr Amu, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, is based at the Ward D Offices within the Women and Children’s Unit at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
His work was highlighted by colleague Debbie Curwen who said she had made the nomination: “For being a very supportive Consultant of the week and for going above and beyond by being sensitive with an extremely anxious patient who required an USS guided biopsy.”
Mr Amu said: “It is nice to be nominated by my colleague who observed and appreciated the ‘above and beyond’ care given to ensure a patient who was extremely anxious, received the treatment required to relieve her distress.”
Going The Extra Mile is an initiative designed to help staff highlight the incredible work that goes on in the Trust every day.
