Student of the Year
WINNER: Leanne Humberstone
Leanne was nominated for her independent and approachable nature. A student who meticulously follows procedures, she is considered to be providing a kind and caring service to her customers using the Patient Transport Service, supporting them throughout their journey to hospital. Her nominee recalled an observation when she used her initiative to ask if a patient might prefer a wheelchair to give them more support and was rewarded with great thanks. She then went on to change the patient’s preferences at booking for future journeys.
Her infectious smile puts patients at ease and her commitment to learning and willingness to apply what she has learned during her working day is commendable and a pleasure to see for her tutors.
HIGHLY COMMENDED: Beverley Rycroft
