Comments from manager: Michelle Welsby

Sarah’s role is to support the Radiographers on the machines in Scheduling of patients’ treatments and appointment times. The role also involves clinical skills i.e. phlebotomy, MEWS, and some skin dressing skills.

Sarah has worked for the Trust on and off for the last 10 years and has worked for Radiotherapy twice in that time - her current role since Jan 2018.

Sarah has fantastic communication skills, this is reflected in the amount of thank you cards Sarah receives from our patients. Her wide knowledge of the hospital gives Sarah that added bonus of being able to answer most patients’ questions, especially if they are anxious, and are not sure where they need to go next, reassuring them and putting both them and their families at ease. Sarah is both reliable and consistent in her every day job role.

Sarah belongs to a local running club and loves her running, but even more we all know of her love of horses and animals in general. She also enjoys her holidays over to Spain-to see her sister
