Mentor of the year
Winner: Andrew Minto
With a heart of gold and outstanding level of teaching at NEAS, it is no doubt for the judges that Andrew Minto is mentor of the year for being a great guide for many years to many different apprentices.
Mentoring new staff can have an enormous impact on setting the standards of the quality care we aspire to deliver to every patient and it can give new recruits the support and confidence they need to flourish.
The level of recognition for Andrew is evident in the amount of nominations he has received as he treats people well and makes all new recruits feel welcomed and included into the team.
One of the nominees for Andrew said, “Andrew was the best mentor I could have asked for and I have learnt a lot from him and this is showing in my current role. I wouldn’t know how to do the role I am in today if it wasn’t for Andrew teaching me everything I now know.”
Andrew’s rapport with patients is evident to his students and he demonstrates to them a level of care, empathy and light heartedness required for the work NEAS employees do.
“Patients are at the heart of his work and he is so kind, caring and is a lovely person to work with. He always has a smile on his face at work and his positive energy makes the day go faster.”
He goes one step further to deliver an exceptional experience for his apprentices, which in turn generates an even stronger team and individuals caring for patients.
He is a valuable member of the team in developing the next generation of frontline workers and as many people would agree, he is a massive credit to NEAS.
