Triple success at the Bayer Ophthalmology Honours

On Thursday 7 March the Bayer Ophthalmology Honours were held to celebrate outstanding work by multi-disciplinary teams and individuals in ophthalmology throughout the UK.

Two colleagues and a Moorfields project were recognised with judges special honours and a commendation.

Daniel Smith, ophthamic technician, received special honours from the judging panel in recognition of his caring personality, cheerful attitude and commitment to ensuring our patients receive a caring and excellent service.

Daniel works in the retinal therapy unit at City Road and provides emotional support to patients, particularly those visiting Moorfields Eye Hospital for the first time. Daniel’s efforts to ensure patients have a positive experience in clinics and make an impact on the lives of vulnerable people stood out to the judges. Congratulations Daniel. 

 

"I'm very honoured to be recognised by the judges and my ophthalmology peers. At the heart of nursing is patient advocacy. To be an effective advocate, we need to acquire and implement evidence-based knowledge and skills. 

Through nursing research, we will continue to develop and deliver improved patient care pathways. This recognition by the Bayer Ophthalmology Honours judging panel is a real boost to our strategic objectives. Nurses, this is just the beginning..!” Dr Roxanne Crosby-Nwaobi, head of research nursing, also received special honours from the judging panel in recognition of her commitment to promoting research through the nursing programme at Moorfields Eye

Hospital. The judges said Roxanne is a positive example for all ophthalmology nurses. Reflecting on receiving the special honours, Roxanne said:

Finally, the team behind the emergency endophthalmitis boxes, Tanya Serebryanska and Ronald Kam were commended in the ‘best service improvement in ophthalmology' category. Bayer received 45 nominations in this category so to make the final shortlist of three nominations is a fantastic achievement!

Well done to everyone all for your amazing work and dedication.
