Breakfast with chief nurse Flo 

16/05/2019 00:00 
Starting a new job can be a scary, uncertain time, but chief nurse Flo Panel-Coates is hoping to make it a bit easier with a novel idea.

New nurses are being invited to a breakfast event with her, where they can talk openly about any concerns they have and how they are settling into the trust in an informal setting.

There are also breakfast events for nurses at all stages of their careers, giving them the chance to talk through any issues and share good practice.

Flo said: “I want everyone to feel respected and in order to feel respected they need to feel listened to.

“It is also good to hear what matters to them and how they are feeling. One person was a bit nervous about a particular clinical skill and we were able to give them help and advice.

“It is also a great opportunity to thank them for their hard work.”

Flo thanked the Essex Wynter Charity, a nursing legacy charity, for their funding which enabled the events to take place.

New starters will receive a card with the details of the next event.
