Dr Alison Coackley
Dr Coackley was nominated for her dedication and compassion and for going the extra mile for one of our patient's.
After being contacted at home for advice regarding a very young patient, Dr Coackley came into the hospital during the night.
She stayed for hours until the patient was settled, not leaving until the early hours of the morning. The family and the patient’s consultant were extremely grateful and this demonstrated care and compassion that is above and beyond.
