Congratulations to 22 of our highly dedicated Health Care Support workers who successfully achieved the Advanced Level Diploma in Healthcare Support as part of the Senior Health Care Support Worker apprenticeship. Many also achieved level 2 (equivalent to GCSE grade A-C) in English and Maths as part of the apprenticeship.
They demonstrated total commitment to their studies whilst also carrying out their duties in their demanding jobs to make sure that they continued to provide first class care to all of our patients and support for their family and friends throughout.
For some, this achievement is just the start of their career to become a Nursing Associate and/or Registered Nurse and they certainly do not intend to stop studying.
Some of the successful Health Care Support workers are pictured above receiving certificates of achievement presented by Louise Molson, Head of Practice and Education. They are Danielle Benson, Rob Bayliss, Kerry O’Rourke, Elizabeth Roberts, Abda Rashid, Yvonne Mittins, Rebecca Dobson, Rina Angosta, Magdalena Ranasinghe, Susan Walters-Albert, Garston Chung, Joyce Chawanda and Kimberley Simpson.
The full list of those who have received their diploma are: Majida Naqvi, Rina Angosta, Jenni Brisland, Yvonne Mittins, Tiffany Bavister, Joyce Chawanda, Garston Chung, Rebecca Dobson, Prisca Dzepasi, Mary Monaghan, Kimberley Simpson, Rob Bayliss, Natalie Morrison, Karen Mullings, Elizabeth Roberts, Danielle Benson, Abda Rashid, Magdalena Ranasinghe, Shabnam Akhtar, Kerry O’Rourke, Susan Walters-Albert and Saeka Jabeen Akhtar
To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital, we are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are receiving palliative treatment at the end of their lives, on a case-by-case basis.
At both our hospitals changes are being made to support services, and we would now ask that you contact the wards using the direct lines found here for Bedford and here for Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
