A Charge Nurse in the Emergency Department at Bassetlaw Hospital was named Star of the Month by the health trust that employs him.

Pete Smith was nominated for the award by his colleague, Deborah Easby, Staff Nurse at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, after he mentored Deborah when she started as a student nurse.

Deborah said: “Throughout my time, Pete shared his extensive knowledge and skills, encouraging me to aspire to become an Emergency Care Nurse upon qualifying.

“Pete has played a vital role in ensuring myself and other new starters have had the support and training pivotal in the transition from student nurse to staff nurse. Pete’s passion and commitment to produce the uttermost highest standards of patient-centred care is portrayed at every opportunity.” Pete was chosen as February’s winner of the DBH Stars of the Month Award by a panel of staff and managers.
