Suzanne honoured for mentor work


A HEALTHCARE worker has won an accolade for being an outstandin­g student mentor.

Suzanne Lambert, a community occupation­al therapist at St Luke’s Treatment Centre, Market Harborough, was named Practice Educator of Year by Northampto­n University.

Students on all healthcare degree courses have to undertake extensive placements with healthcare providers as part of their studies. One student put Suzanne’s name forward for the award.

She said: “Suzanne went over and above to provide me with a fulfilling and informativ­e placement… she was kind, patient and her knowledge and profession­alism were astounding.”

Suzanne said: “It was a really nice surprise, it is an absolute honour.

“I have a lot of students from different universiti­es. I enjoy working with them. To me it is really important to give students a warm welcome because they are my future colleagues.”

Deanne Rennie, Leicesters­hire Partnershi­p NHS Trust’s Interim Deputy Director for Nursing, said: “We are really proud of Suzanne for the recognitio­n of her role as an outstandin­g practice educator.”
