Our outstanding staff named in national healthcare awards

 

Inspirational leaders Dr Aisling Martin and Catherine Manning have been named as best in their field in recent award ceremonies.

Dr Martin scooped the Top Obstetrician award at the Mums and Tots Awards and Catherine Manning was voted Midwife of the Year at the recent Maternity and Infant Awards lunch, which was filmed by TV3.

Both Aisling and Catherine were nominated by patients who felt they were fully deserving of these titles.

Using their own time, staff worked to devise shorter queues, less waiting time, a new outpatient journey map and a new map to help women find their way around the Outpatient Department. These significant improvements have been roundly welcomed by patients.

The awards recognise and shine a spotlight on our staff who make, and will continue to make, a significant impact on the quality of care for each and every one of the women who choose the Coombe for their care.
