Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust | London
Domestic Services Manager Margaret Harris and her team have throughout the pandemic played a vital role in ensuring we can deliver safe, effective care and helping us to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the hospital.
When COVID-19 arrived in the UK, the work of the domestics increased significantly and there was a constant demand for rooms, side rooms and wards to be cleaned or deep cleaned as the hospital managed varying patient cohorts and separated patients with COVID-19 from those who didn’t have the virus.
Margaret is always quick to deliver whatever is demanded of her and her team and she does so without any complaint. Whenever more scrubs are needed, she provides them without fuss. When we need a transfer team to get covid patients from one part of the hospital to another, she does so quickly and efficiently – a team made up of a nurse, a porter and cleaner working together to ensure patients are moved safely and quickly. She is an inspiring leader who supports her team to deliver the very best care.
