A Teesside nurse has been honoured in the prestigious Cavell Star Awards.
Georgina McDonald, acting ward manager for ward 36 at The James Cook University Hospital, was nominated by her colleagues for going above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic.
Georgina, who has worked for South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for 12 years, has been praised by her colleagues for her positive ‘glass is always full’ and can-do attitude which has helped boost morale.
Nursing charity Cavell Nurses’ Trust launched the Cavell Star Awards in 2018 in partnership with LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare.
The Cavell Star Awards are given to nurses, midwives, nursing associates and healthcare assistants who show exceptional care to either their colleagues or their patients and patients’ families. Each winner receives a medal, presentation case and pin badge.
Georgina said: “It was a huge surprise to be given this award. I feel really honoured and quite overwhelmed. I would like to say thank you to Stacey, Jordan and Robert for nominating me.
“They mentioned that I always have a positive ‘glass is always full’ attitude and I can hand on heart say that this is down to my colleagues, I couldn’t do it all without the amazing team around me.”
