Posted on in Fundraising, Hospitals

Intrepid nurse Bev Tytler is really going that extra mile to help patients at the hospital where she works.

Bev Tytler Bev, 38, from Ingleby Barwick is pulling on her running shoes and taking part in this year’s Taylor Wimpey Middlesbrough Tees Pride 10K.

Rated by many as one of the best 10k races in the country, Bev is joining thousands of runners on the well-known circular route on Sunday 6 September 2015 starting and finishing in and around Middlesbrough’s Hall drive / avenue of trees.

An orthopaedic discharge sister for South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s trauma and theatre centre, Bev is keen on keeping fit and healthy.  She is hoping to achieve a personal best time in the race, helping herself and benefiting others at the same time.

Passionate about patient care and ensuring the patient care environment and ultimately the patients’ experience of healthcare is safe and of the highest quality she is determined to make a difference.

Bev is committed to ensuring patients hospital stay is as good as possible and to enhancing patient comfort and care on wards 34, 36 and 37 at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

She said: “I love my role and I work together with great teams daily.  I am grateful for the support and encouragement I receive from the management of the centre where I work.  I want to make sure all patients have a positive experience and as the most important person in the medical care system are at centre of everything we do.

“The 10K is a great event and I am looking forward to the challenge and hope people will support me so I can benefit patients at the hospital.”
