Celebrating our nurses - Lucy Mackenzie
Date: 03 February 2020
2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. At Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust we are proud of the wonderful nurses who make up our diverse workforce and provide an excellent care for patients.
To celebrate their skills and commitment, throughout the year we will be sharing their stories and showcasing the amazing work they do.
This month we would like to introduce you to Lucy Mackenzie, winner of our Nurse of the Year Award 2019.
Lucy has been recognised by her colleagues for being compassionate and caring. She is always smiling and has time for patients.
Lucy has been working for our Trust for 27 years. She completed her training at Friern Barnet Hospital and came to Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust when the hospital closed down. She now works in The Oaks, Chase Farm Hospital where she provides care and support to older adults.
Lucy said: “The best part of my job are all the different people that I meet; interacting with them and helping them to get better and return to their lives. I like that every day is different and you never know what challenges you will face. When you go home after a shift, you feel that you have made a difference to someone’s life. It’s an amazing feeling.”
“When I found out that I had won Nurse of the Year Award 2019, I felt really honoured and very pleased that my colleagues had taken time to nominate me. It made me feel valued and happy that I am appreciated.”
