Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, congratulates Jodi Roper, a Child Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner working in the Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, on being shortlisted for the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2022.
The NHS Parliamentary Awards was launched in 2018 to celebrate the NHS’ 70th birthday and recognise the excellent contribution of staff and volunteers working in the health and care sector. Members of Parliament are encouraged to nominate outstanding individuals who go above and beyond to care for their patients, and the staff that are shortlisted are invited to attend an Awards Ceremony in Westminster.
Jodi was nominated by Graham Stuart MP for the Rising Star Award because she is an exemplary young clinician who has unbelievable enthusiasm, determination and compassion. She is able to really engage and support children and young people, and their families, to empower them to believe in themselves, understand they are not alone and to support them to access the intervention that they require. Her excellent ways of working have resulted in some children and young people who may have ordinarily disengaged staying on board to continue to access the support they are being provided. These children have engaged with Jodi in a way that has led to a positive change for them.
After finding out that she has been shortlisted, Jodi commented: “I am very pleased to be shortlisted for the Rising Star Award and I would like to thank Graham for nominating me for this. Working with young people and their families is really rewarding and it is great to see the positive outcomes we can achieve through the work that we do.”
Graham, who nominated Jodi for the award in April, said: “I am delighted that Jodi has been shortlisted for the Rising Star Award. She is a great asset to the NHS as she regularly goes above and beyond to make a positive difference to her patients’ lives. Congratulations Jodi, I am sure that you have a wonderful career ahead of you!”
