Who’d be a Bed Co-Ordinator? In Praise of Kerry Minnis

Bed co-ordinator must be a tricky job

Bed co-ordinator must be a tricky job

There are lots of jobs I would not do, and being a bed co-ordinator is one of them. I imagine it must be a complete headache. Trying to juggle lots of balls at one time. So it was lovely to hear S/N Kathryn Norwood’s email thanking Kerry Minnis who does exactly that job

“Hi David,
its Kat off Laurel 2 again. I wondered if you would mind putting a mesage on your blog .
There is a lovely young lady by the name of Kerry Minnis who is the bed coordinator around the hospital, she does such a hard job chasing beds and running round, but she always manages to do it with a smile on her face. And always tries to cheer me up when I’m down on the ward. Ijust wanted to let her know that she is very much appreciated and I’m sure it’s not just by us on laurel 2 but on the many other wards she visits aswell.

Thanks
Kathryn.”

Now it’s easy to overlook the fact that we all have a part to play in the Trust; there are no spare parts. And I wonder if you have anyone that you would like to praise for the work that they do- going the extra mile and making a difference. If there is, then write to me at revdavidsouthall@aol.com and I will post it.
