Congratulations to Tamara from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow! You are a PICU Superstar.


15 January 2021
      

Congratulations to Tamara from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow! You are a PICU Superstar.

Tamara from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow is our newest PICU Superstar!

Michelle got in touch with us because her son, Arthur, spent a lot of time in the PICU and she wanted to say an extra special thank you to Tamara.

" Arthur had a rocky start to life. He was born at 27 weeks and was treated in the NICU. Arthur got NEC x2 and had 6 surgeries on his tummy. He also had stage 5 ROP in his left eye and stage 4 ROP in his right eye.

Arthur was admitted to the PICU because of his chronic lung disease and they put him on a BiPAP so I could get him home. They also fitted a peg in Arthur's tummy so that he could grow and feed.

Tamara was always there when it got bad and she was a great shoulder to cry on. She helped to build up my confidence in caring for Arthur and made sure that I got all the training I needed. She always made sure I was listened to.

Tamara was really supportive of me and my family. Thank you so much, Tamara!"


You are a true superstar, Tamara. It's incredible how much help you give to families like Michelle's. Thank you for everything you do - you are truly deserving of this award!

Would you like to nominate your PICU Superstar?

If you would like to nominate a PICU Superstar to say an extra special thank you, please email us with the name of the person you would like to nominate, the unit they work in and why you would like to nominate them.
