LGT Star of the Month March

We are delighted to announce that Funke Hamed, a Staff Nurse on Ward 14 at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, has been awarded our LGT Star of the Month for March 2024.

Genevive Onyejegbu, a Healthcare Assistant at LGT, explained why she nominated her: “Funke is a dedicated team member, teacher, and role model with a can-do attitude, this is why I nominated her for the Superstar Award. She is exceptionally well-organised and excels in overseeing a busy ward, especially during the winter when demands are greater.

She is always supportive of us and strongly believes in staff development, having helped several of us pursue careers in nursing.

Patient care is her top priority, making her an asset to any team at LGT, and she goes above and beyond to make it a better place. She strives to take on any challenge and is confident in her abilities. Funke deserves recognition for her professionalism, positive attitude towards patients and colleagues, and her contributions to the team.”

Mike Bell, Chair of LGT, congratulated Funke and presented her with her certificate during the Trust Board meeting yesterday at Kaleidoscope. Funke was also presented with a £100 voucher and a fruit basket donated by Hasan, who runs the fruit stall at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

A surprised Funke, said: "I am thrilled and proud to have received the LGT Star of the Month award, and I would like to thank all of my colleagues on Ward 14 for motivating and inspiring me each day. We are all dedicated and work extremely hard to make sure that our patents receive the highest level of care. I have worked at LGT for 10 years and truly enjoyed every day. As a thank you to my fantastic colleagues and for receiving this honour, I treated them to a delicious lunch."

Jessie Gale, Vinci Facilities Manager, who chaired this month’s judging panel commented: “Funke was chosen as our winner because of her amazing organisation skills when keeping a busy ward under control especially through winter pressures. Her colleagues speak of her so highly and she has a great rapport with them which comes across very genuine. Everyone around her seems to feel some comfort and at ease which is so important especially with the outside stresses of work, to have that relationship with colleagues just makes work life balance better. Patient care is at her forefront which is an asset to any team within the hospital environment and she goes the extra mile to make it a better place. What a superstar she is.”
