District Nurse Sister Rachel Jump is celebrating after being nominated for three Going the Extra Mile awards by colleagues.
Rachel, who is part of the Lytham District Nurses’ leadership team, has been nominated by colleagues Kathryn Smith, Debbie Bates and Maxine O’Grady.
In her nomination, Kathryn explained that Rachel ‘is an inspirational leader and has supported many staff.’
Meanwhile, Debbie Bates nominated her for ‘providing support and leadership to the team during a staffing crisis’ as well as for being there to reassure staff, ensure visits are safely allocated and working to keep patients safe and staff feeling supported.
Finally, Maxine O’Grady said of Rachel: “Not only is Rachel a fabulous Sister supporting all nurses and patients at Lytham District Nurses, she is always doing extra for everyone.” Maxine went on to say: “Rachel remains positive every day, encouraging everyone to be their best and for patient care to be second to none.”
Rachel said receiving the awards had made her smile: “It was such a nice thing to receive them. They really do pick you up.
“It’s really rewarding knowing you’re doing a good job – it’s so nice to know that what you’re doing is effective and making a difference.”
Going The Extra Mile is an initiative designed to help staff highlight the incredible work that goes on in the Trust every day.
