The EME Equipment Library team based at Eastbourne DGH are winners of the Trust’s ‘Hero of the Month’ award.

The Team was nominated by Simeon Beaumont, EME Manager who said: “Equipment librarians at Eastbourne, Martinha Kirk and Tracie Hazel have worked above and beyond during the last month as the Trust has been exceptionally busy. Despite the increase in activity they have managed to meet every single equipment request, including visiting clinical areas to re-issue equipment where it was needed, therefore improving our patient’s clinical outcomes. They are true super heroes of the Trust and regularly clock up over 20,000 steps in their shifts to provide the equipment where and when it is needed.”

Trust Chairman, Steve Phoenix presented them both with a certificate and a love to shop voucher.

The ‘Hero of the Month’ award recognises the great work of colleagues who demonstrate how East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust values are lived out as part of everyday working life.

Each month, members of staff nominate their colleagues for this award. Eight Divisional heroes of the month are then selected by divisional leads, and these nominations go forward to be selected as the overall Trust ‘Hero of the Month’ by the Trust Executive.
