A member of the Workforce Transformation at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) has been honoured for her mentoring skills.

Tracy Newbold with her award

Tracy Newbold, Pre-Employment Avisor, won the Most Helpful Mentor Award after being nominated by a student from Burton Borough School who had participated in The Work Related Learning Week which is organised by Tracy.

This is a programme where young people between the ages of 14 and 15-years-old, who are interested in the NHS, have a week’s placement and have the opportunity to meet staff from different departments to talk about their career routes, job roles and get involved with activities.

It is difficult for young people to have work experience within clinical areas; however Tracy organises this week to ensure students are able to gain valuable insight into clinical professions within a classroom environment.

Tracy was presented with her award by Raj Mehta, Mayor of Telford & Wrekin, where she was given a Certificate and Trophy.
