Well done to Lois Anderson-Leary, who works as a trainee Respiratory Physiologist in our Pulmonary Function Unit at Castle Hill Hospital.

Lois was named “Apprentice of the Year” in Sheffield Hallam University’s “Inspirational Student Awards 2022.”

Lois joined the trust on a level 2 Clinical Support Apprenticeship programme, specialising in GI Physiology, in September 2016 and went on to undertake a degree apprenticeship, studying a BSC HON Healthcare Science in Cardiovascular Respiratory and Sleep Sciences.​

Her citation from unit manager Harriet Hearn stated Lois had “shown true passion for the speciality and this is reflected in time spent with patients and staff and the quality of clinic work produced.

Harriet wrote that Lois brought “an excellent working attitude every day” and was “a massive influence on the workplace in only a positive way.”

Anne Burdis, Assistant Learning and Development Manager (Widening Participation), said: “This is an outstanding achievement for Lois, and we simply couldn’t be more proud of her and her achievements.”
