Former GWH apprentice wins top Health Education England award

L to r: GWH's Chief Nurse Hilary Walker, Louise Steer, Annie Gough, Rachel Palfreeman (Matron for Meldon Ward)L to r: GWH's Chief Nurse Hilary Walker, Louise Steer, Annie Gough, Rachel Palfreeman (Matron for Meldon Ward)Louise Steer, who was an apprentice at the Great Western Hospital, has received the Higher Apprentice of the Year award at the Health Education England (HEE) awards ceremony in Taunton.

 


She was nominated by teams at Swindon College and GWH for the prestigious award, which celebrates exceptional students who have undertaken university degree-level apprenticeships.

Louise, 32, began an apprenticeship at Swindon College in 2015, studying for a foundation degree in Health and Social Care whilst working part-time as a Health Care Assistant at the hospital.

Louise Steer knew she was in the final, but didn’t think she was going to win: "My apprenticeship was really good; if anyone is thinking about doing one I would say ‘go for it’.  Swindon College were really supportive and they work closely with the hospital - I can’t fault the support I’ve had from everyone on the ward.”

Louise now works as an assistant practitioner on GWH’s Meldon Ward, which specialises in bowel cancer operations, smaller gastroenterology operations and routine Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgery.

Annie Gough is the ward manager who nominated Louise: “She is a credit to the team, when we are really pushed that’s when she comes into her own.  She works to such a high standard all the time - she’s fabulous.”

You can find out more about the national apprenticeships scheme here or apprenticeships at Swindon College here.
