We are thrilled to announce that one of July’s winners was Fradreck Shuke, a Registered Nurse at Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust. We caught up with Fradreck to find out more about him and his working life.
How did you get into nursing?
My mum and sister are both nurses, so it runs in the family!
What does your typical day at work consist of?
I work mainly night shifts so I do a lot of 1:1 sessions and observations with patients before they go to sleep. I’m also the shift planner for my team and do medication admin.
What do you love most about your job?
Providing and helping clients on their journey to recovering.
How would your colleagues describe you in three words?
Hardworking, fair and understanding.
What’s been your proudest achievement at work to date?
When I get recognition from my colleagues.
What’s the most challenging part of your role?
Managing shifts when there aren’t enough staff.
What’s the best thing about working for NHS Professionals?
You always get support whenever you need it. If I ever have an issue with my placement area, it gets sorted by the onsite team promptly.
What do you usually do on your days off?
Spend time with family and friends and I also read a lot, to continue to develop my career.

• Not cancel any shifts for that month.
• Fill the highest number of shifts in the month for which they are being considered for.
A huge well done to Fradreck and all the other July 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.
