“Dr Wennike’s colleagues have recognised that he helps out with any task however big or small, when the ward is under pressure.” She said.

Dr Wennike commented “I was a little shocked to receive this award but am really honoured to learn that the nomination of this award was put forward by my colleagues.”

“To me it is definitely a team effort on the ward.” He said.

The winner of Employee of the Month receives a prize bundle worth over £100 sponsored by Holiday Inn Taunton, Tone Leisure, O’Bridge Brewers Fayre, Musgrove Flowers and Orchards Restaurant.
