Hannah Jory, Assistant Practitioner in Research and Development
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Hannah Jory as I nominate her as a colleague who has gone above and beyond
for me. I have lived in Plymouth less than a year, first day in my job at the Hospital, I discovered I work in the same office as my neighbour Hannah who I had not met till then. Wow! what a welcome from her! She introduced me to the other neighbours, offered help and advice on things to do in the city and free lifts into work during school holidays. Hannah you have been s true shinning star!
