Kind-hearted Physio wins Health Hero Award

A physiotherapist who has been described as “kind and selfless” has won the latest Health Hero Award at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.

Megan Pinches, Specialist Trauma and Orthopaedics Physiotherapist, has won the monthly award at the Oswestry-based hospital after receiving five nominations from her colleagues.

Her nominations came from Therapy Support Workers Joanna Lewis and Viv MacDonald and Physiotherapists Larna Andrew, Ruth Corbett and Georgie Chetwood, who all described her as someone who is always willing to go above and beyond for patients and staff alike.

Citations included Viv’s, which stated: “Megan is kind-hearted and hard working. She is very supportive of colleagues and will always help if she can.”

Ruth added: “She’s a brilliant physio who will do the absolute best for her patients, not to mention the most helpful, loveliest person.”

And Larna said: “She is an excellent physio with outstanding knowledge and also such a lovely person with patients and colleagues.”

Megan was presented with the award in front of colleagues, who arranged a ‘team meeting’ so that she would have no idea it was happening.

She said: “This was a complete surprise; I wasn’t expecting it at all.

“It means so much to me that my colleagues took the time to nominate me and said such nice things about me. I’m very touched and I’ll display the certificate at home with pride.”

The award was announced at today’s Board of Directors meeting and was presented to Megan by Chief Executive Mark Brandreth.

Mark said: “Our Therapies team play a key role in delivering a high standard of patient care.

“Megan is clearly a highly valued member of staff and her dedication to her patients is an inspiration to all. She is the perfect example of a staff member who lives the Trust Values in everything she does.”
