She said: “It’s lovely to be nominated by my own colleagues, I am really thrilled”. Dawn’s colleagues’ comments included that she goes the extra mile for her staff and patients on a daily basis, she is an asset to the ward and a caring manager. The October Celebrating Excellence Staff Award winner was David Sear, a porter in the acute admissions unit at Watford Hospital. David was nominated by nine members of staff. David said: “I am really pleased to have been nominated for this award. I would like to thank all of the people that put me forward”. One of David’s nominations said: “David is a very hard working porter who will always go the extra mile for our patients and staff. He always comes onto the shift smiling and is missed when he is not on. He thoroughly deserves this award for his general kindness and hard work”. Samantha Jones, Chief Executive, said; “I would like to congratulate both Dawn and David for winning. We are very proud of them. “Our doctors, nurses and other staff work very hard and often in difficult circumstances.
