A hospital matron who helped oversee changes to maternity services in and around Havering has won an award for her work.
Kim Hurn was named Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust’s “star of the month” for April, following the closure of King George Hospital’s labour ward.
The matron led her staff through the changes, and spoke to women who were due to give birth at King George, reassuring them about going to a different hospital. Many women who had planned to have their babies at the Goodmayes hospital were instead directed to Queen’s Hospital, Romford.
Midwifery director Wendy Matthews said: “I am extremely proud of all the hard work that my team put into the reconfiguration.
“I was delighted to hear Kim has been singled out for playing such a key role in the trust’s maternity changes.”
