Bradford Teaching Hospitals’ healthcare assistant, Pat Connell, has been awarded an MBE for her services to the NHS in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Pat, who has worked at the Bradford Royal Infirmary for more than 23 years, is one of ward one’s most valued members of staff. She was nominated for the honour by senior sisters, Jane Palmer and Sonya Tetley, for being an inspirational role model and for her tireless hands-on work.
Chief Executive, Bryan Millar, said: “I am delighted that Pat has been recognised nationally for her unstinting service to the patients of Bradford Teaching Hospitals over the past two decades.
“She is kind, compassionate, hard-working, loyal, trustworthy and an inspiration to all who come into contact with her – be it patients or healthcare professionals alike.
“Everyone loves Pat and she has rare qualities that make her deeply valued by her colleagues.”
