Briony is operationally responsible for King's A&E (over 125 thousand attend each year) and she is always available to every member of staff to get them over the tough times and through the overwhelming pressures of this busy environment. She appears to know everyone who works in the department and, more importantly, they know her and they all know that she will give them the time they need to answer their questions, sort out their queries, given them direction and encouragement and be a solid rock of support and reliablility. Recently she broke her ankle and continued to maintain a presence in the department with her leg in support (when it really should have been in plaster). She really does have the sunniest of personalities and her enthusiasm, committment and dedication to patients and the NHS is an inspiration to everyone. One example of her total committment to her staff was last year when in France celebrating her 40th birthday she was contacted to be told that a member of her nursing staff had sadly died, she then spent the rest of the day calling back to the UK offering support and guidance to the staff in the hospital, contacting the decease's family offering comfort and condolences and ensuring that the necessary HR paperwork was being completed - all the time not letting on that it was her special birthday and she was out of the country celebrating with her family and friends. She deserves recognition for being a wonderful person.
