Text of a letter received by Nicola from Professor Trevor Sheldon of HYMS:
I am writing to let you know that as part of the team, which worked so hard
on setting up the Physician Associate Training Programme over the last year,
you have been nominated for a Staff Excellence Award for your exemplary
A panel drawn from Management Board looked at all nominations. I am
delighted to let you know that it decided your contribution should be
recognised and celebrated by the School. You will therefore be invited to the
School’s next Teaching Excellence Awards Ceremony where your contribution
to the successful development of the programme will be recognised.
The panel noted the impressive achievement of setting up the programme in a
very short period of time and your collective efforts as a highly performing
team to design, develop and have the programme approved, arrange
placements and recruit successfully a full cohort of students. It was particularly
impressive as many of you could not devote yourself full-time to this activity
and it had to be balanced with your other roles.
Congratulations and thank you for your contribution to HYMS.
