Latest Winner

The winner of the March You Made a Difference Award is:- Linda Roberts

The following comment was made about Linda Roberts in the nominations. Judges picked out Linda as a very deserving winner and said that the comment made about them showed how they represent the Christie principles and behaviors. 

“As a Radiotherapy patient using EMAS transport I encountered many problems waiting for transport home, on one occasion nearly four hours. On Wednesday, my final day of treatment, the taxi bringing me to The Christie broke down en route! When I reported to the Transport Desk for my return journey your receptionist said "Anne, I have a surprise for you!” Waiting was a taxi driver!! She gave me a hug when I told her it was my final day, and I willingly returned that hug. I have to say that without her support and caring manner I had seriously considered giving up on the treatment. The delays to my journey were just becoming too much to bear. If nothing else please convey my gratitude to her - she is a credit to The Christie”.

Patient

“Linda first joined the Trust in 2010 as an administrator and has been working in the hospital transport department for the past four years.

The Trust’s Hospital Transport Department consists of a small team who plan and provide transport for patients. This involves dealing with external Patient Transport Services, Taxis companies and the Trust’s Volunteer Drivers. It is an extremely busy department with many conflicting challenges.

In the past four years since joining the Christie Transport Department Linda has worked very hard to deliver a professional service while attending to each patients needs with such care and affection as though they were each a member of her family.

I feel Linda deserves this award as recognition of her continued professionalism her kindness and dedication to all who access the service.

Linda has always gone above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction and for this cannot thank you enough. Keep up the good work.”

Dwain Bryan, Support Manager
