The Private Medical Secretary of the Year Awards, organised by BSMSA (The British Society of Medical Secretaries and Administrators), recognises those members of medical secretarial staff who have gone above and beyond in their roles.
Victoria Campbell has worked at Spire Bushey Hospital for 5 years and in that time has proved herself to be a valued member of staff. Her peers and the consultants she works for nominated her, and this week, she has been awarded ‘Runner-up’ of the Year.
Hylda Whitehead, Deputy CEO of the BSMSA was on the panel of judges; “We had lots of excellent nominations this year and we had a difficult decision to make. One of the reasons why Victoria stood out was that she had reorganised the office environment during the difficult phase of the installation of new technology. This necessitated her attending various training sessions and meetings so that she could then cascade the information to her colleagues.”
Victoria was unaware of her nomination until Wednesday 16 October when her award was presented to her by Kingsley Hollis from DGL Solutions, who sponsor the Award.
Mr Tim Waters, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Spire Bushey Hospital, made one of the many nominations; “Vicky is a complete self-starter. She has worked her way up to medical secretary in such a short space of time and is fantastic with patients. Frankly I couldn’t do my job without her!”
Victoria also works for Mr Zak Rahman, consultant bariatric surgeon at Spire Bushey Hospital who says; “I have worked with Victoria for a year, and in that time she has shown herself to be conscientious and hard working. The feedback I have received from patients has always been excellent.”
