Take a look at who has also now been recognised as an official #NHS70Superstar with first names beginning with H:

Habib Dadhiwala, support time and recovery worker, Kirklees insight team, Folly Hall
“For being so enthusiastic, inclusive and creative. Creating exciting opportunities for service users and staff to learn new skills, new hobbies, and new things about themselves and each other.”

Hannah Farrell, staff nurse, Ward 19, Priestley Unit, Dewsbury
“Hannah worked hard on her return from maternity leave and always providing high standards of care to everyone.”

Hannah Gregson, patient safety administration officer
“Thank you for your support with formatting a report in a quick and very efficient manner.”

“Hannah has been a great support, she is helpful, willing to do anything needed, keeping calm under pressure and dealing with things without being asked. This has been really welcomed in recent weeks as we’ve had a very busy time. She’s really helped things tick along smoothly! Thank you for all your hard work, Hannah.”

Hannah Januszczyk, bank clinical pharmacist
“Thank you for being amenable, reliable, diligent, hardworking and trustworthy.”

“Hannah is a joy to work with – she’s bright, motivated, hardworking and an extremely good clinical pharmacist! She’ll willingly do whatever is needed, however challenging and approaches everything with good grace, professionalism and determination.”

Hannah Walker, healthcare support worker, forensics, Newton Lodge
“Hannah is an absolute delight to work with. She works above and beyond her job role and continues to provide excellent care when faced with very challenging circumstances. Hannah has supported me through many difficult shifts and I’m sure that anyone who has worked with her will say that they couldn’t do it without her.”

Hanna Vasey, member of bank staff, Ward 18, Priestley unit, Dewsbury
“Hanna continues to work effortlessly with service users in a caring and compassionate manner. Hanna is able to prioritise her clinical work and the time needed to spend with service users. She is very supportive and never says “no” or that she does not have time for the service users in her care. Well done Hanna you are a good role model for all.”

Harvey Jones, healthcare assistant, Stanley ward
Harvey is a font of knowledge and has a wealth of experience. He has been extremely supportive of me throughout difficult times and challenges on the ward over the last couple of years.   Harvey continues to prove that he is the hub of the ward and strives to provide the best possible care to service users and also keeps the staff team sane.   Thank you, Harvey, for always having my back and being a true friend!”

Haydi Holden, staff nurse, Stanley Ward
“Haydi is a big character with a bubbly and friendly personality. She never fails to make you laugh or smile and always has a positive and proactive attitude to her workload.   Haydi has achieved great things whilst building her confidence on Stanley Ward and this is all down to her own determination and drive. Haydi is extremely hard working and supportive of both junior and senior colleagues. Haydi is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day!”

Hayley Beaumont, mental health practitioner, Calderdale CAMHS, Laura Mitchell Health and Wellbeing Centre
“Being a conscientious and extremely knowledgeable supervisor.”

Hayley Cullen, staff nurse, Thornhill Ward, Bretton Centre
“Hayley is bright, bubbly and a joyous person to be around. She is caring and dedicated and her singing never fails to make me smile.”

“Hayley is very professional with me as a patient and I can talk to her about any subject matter. She treats me with respect as I do her. She is bubbly, kind and caring and is an asset to the ward.”

“I have worked alongside Hayley throughout her time as a student nurse, a staff nurse on proctorship and now as a staff nurse – I can genuinely say that her positivity, enthusiasm, commitment and passion shines through each and every shift. She’s an absolute pleasure to work with as she is encouraging and hilarious (this makes a difference, laughter brightens many things). She’s always got time for people no matter who they are or where they are from. She is an NHS70 Superstar.”

“I have worked on a couple of hectic shifts with Hayley and she has been so organised and dealt with everything in a professional and timely manner. Being able to see such good practice and to be updated on situations as a student nurse is really helpful and allows me to progress and better understand. Hayley is very knowledgeable and has really positive working relationships with the service users.”

“Hayley returned from maternity leave when her baby was 5 months old. She’d recently qualified when she found out she was having her little bundle of joy. Since coming back, it was clear she felt torn between returning to her dream job and being at home with her baby. However, she has put her heart and soul into both, juggling being a brilliant mum and being a fantastic nurse. I have watched her grow in confidence since her return, tackling lots of difficult situations head-on. She never shies away from appropriately challenging decisions that she doesn’t agree with and she leads a shift amazingly. Hayley should be very proud of herself, the strength she has is truly outstanding.”

Hayley Martin, secretary, Calderdale CAMHS, Laura Mitchell Health and Wellbeing Centre
“Hayley is always willing to help anybody whether they are clients with an enquiry, clinicians with a query, or her admin colleagues. Nothing is too much trouble even though she has her own very large and busy workload. Thank you for being so wonderful.”

Hayley Vernum, Medical records, Beechdale ward, the Dales, Calderdale
“The other part of the dynamic duo who run the show in medical records and reception. Both work together and do things behind the scenes that people do not see. Another true superstar.”

Hazel Hadfield, administrative assistant, Ward 19, Priestley Unit
“Thank you for providing quality administrative support to the ward.”

Hazel Lunn, healthcare support worker, Johnson ward, Newton Lodge

She’s 100% dedicated to her role and always has a smile on her face. From being new in my post she has supported me in meetings and sorting work out professionally, as well as always being the go-to person when stuck with processes (Agresso or train tickets). The nomination is well deserved she is an unsung hero and the work she does is vital to the machine working.”

Feeling that you matter matters, this makes you feel valued, not just as a colleague but as a person. It’s a bonus that’s she’s hardworking and has a great personality and sense of humour.”

Helen Carter, research administrator, research and development, Fieldhead

Helen Dowd, clinical team leader, Beechdale ward, Calderdale
“I would like to thank Helen for all her hard work and commitment to both patient care and the staff team. She is dynamic and outstanding in her approach to patients, families/carers, always putting the patient first. She is innovative in her ideas on improvements for the ward and incorporates this in supporting staff fully to drive this forward. Her attention to detail when leading is second to none.”

The FOCUS team would be lost without her! Helen has amazing at supporting the engagement from our wider partnership networks which has supported and improved the service development. Helen is, without doubt, the most dedicated, hardworking and passionate colleague/manager I have ever worked with. Her attitude and commitment to the young people and families she works with is unquestionable. As a member of her team, she is so supportive, dedicated and passionate about her team members always trying to help and support where possible ensuring the best outcome for our young people and their families. Helen is not afraid to challenge decisions, she is confident and very articulate in her approach and gives everyone around her confidence in her and their own abilities.”

Junior staff look up to Helen for advice and guidance-she is exemplary in how she deals with this. She is approachable, respectful and caring, and inspires people to improve and be outstanding; a great example of ‘leading by example’. She goes out of her way to make time for everyone and ensures they are ok both in a professional and personal capacity.”

“Helen has such a dedication to our carers that she goes above and beyond what would normally be expected.

She made me feel really good about what we are doing and inspired me to have the same approach as her.”

“Helen is an outstanding member of staff, employed by Kirklees Council. Helen is a force of light in the Trust, always working hard for carers and making a difference to our offer. She is a strategic thinker, exceptionally bright and a natural leader in all aspects of mental health and social care work. I have noticed Helen is an instinctive problem solver, often getting close to the problem quickly. She possesses a high degree of integrity, is always a consummate professional, flexible to demands of the service and clarity of purpose in the execution of her role. She is well liked and very funny. Someone I would not be surprised to see progressing her career towards strategic work in the future. We all think she is the key to getting better outcomes for carers.”
