Senior Matron and ‘disco queen’ Julie highly commended

Julie Fulea, Senior Matron for Oxford Health’s Older Adult Mental Health Acute Inpatient Services in the Fulbrook Centre was officially crowned the ‘disco queen’ of the Trust when she received her highly commended certificate for the April round of Exceptional People Awards on Friday last week.

Julie’s award ceremony at the Fulbrook Centre coincided with a visit from Grant Macdonald, Executive Managing Director for Mental Health & Learning Disabilities, who was visiting several Trust sites on the day.  Julie and Grant are pictured above with Modern Matron Laura Parsons.

Grant said:

“During the day I have met with staff across the units and heard about the excellent work that each of them do. I have also got a sense of some of the pressures and challenges, so I can only commend Julie for the extra mile she is going to connect with her colleagues! Well done and congratulations!”

Julie had been nominated by arts co-ordinator Angela Conlan who put Julie forward to the awards for her enthusiasm for health and wellbeing at the Trust. Angela wrote:

“Julie’s ability to connect with colleagues, not just in her own team but from across the Trust with enthusiasm and passion is contagious. She went above and beyond to secure the Strictly sensation Robin Windsor for the 10-minute discos last year – she is our own disco queen! This has made a difference to colleagues across the Trust.”

In her spare time Julie created a playlist for the International Women’s day for colleagues, with colleagues over social media .”
