Lesley Manwaring, Admin & Clerical Worker, wins May’s Bank Worker of the Month Award

Lesley Manwaring - East KentWe are delighted to announce that one of May’s winners was Lesley Manwaring, an Admin and Clerical Worker at East Kent Hospitals Uni NHS Foundation Trust. We spoke to Lesley to find out more about her and her working life.

How do you feel about winning the award?

I was very surprised and happy to win this award. It’s one of those things that you think will never happen to you!

What is your role and what do you do at the hospital?

 I have been working in the Radiology department at the William Harvey hospital since September last year, inputting ultrasound and CT requests from GP’s and consultants on to the system. I also help with incoming and outgoing post and will do anything I can to help anyone. I have also been assigned with showing new recruits around and helping with their training on the systems associated with their job roles.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I love meeting and helping people from all walks of life and the variety of duties involved with the positions I help to cover.

What’s the best thing about working for NHS Professionals?

The best thing has to be how flexible it is which really suits my lifestyle, as well as the variety of shifts I work; every day is different!

What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?

My main hobby is my family, especially my nine grandchildren! I like to relax in the evenings and watch TV and I also love to knit and sew.

What are your plans for the next 5-10 years?

I am due to retire in September 2020 but I would like to continue working for NHSP doing admin / clerical work. Even when I retire, I will probably continue to work for NHSP part time.

Congratulations to Lesley and all the other May winners! Thank you to all of our workers for ensuring that patients receive the best care possible, and for being great ambassadors for NHS Professionals.
