Employee of the Month - October 2016

Date: 18 October 2016

Every month we celebrate a team or individual staff member who has gone above and beyond their role to deliver great patient care, better patient or carer experience or who have truly demonstrated the Trust’s values in their work in whatever role they have – front-line, back office or support staff.

This month’s Employee of the Month is:

Chloe Stepney, Community Psychiatric Nurse from Bridgwater Crisis Team.

Chloe was nominated by Laura Hopkins, Team Manager who said:

“Chloe recently dealt with an extremely difficult telephone call by an actively suicidal gentleman who was by the train tracks, intending to end his life.

“Chloe remained calm, kept the gentleman talking and alerted police who were able to locate the gentleman and remove him to safety.

“Chloe provided life-saving support and dealt superbly with a traumatic and emotionally charged telephone call.”
