Below are some patient testimonials that Mr Hookway has previously received:
"I was a day case patient at Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust yesterday under Mr Hookway. I would like to thank him for his care. I wish I could remember everyone's name to thank them all.
From first contact with ward clerk and nurses/HCA on Fal where I also met my friendly anaesthetist Helga, through my walk to theatres with a lovely ODP with a great team, the lovely ladies assisting in my recovery (in recovery) and Postbridge who were so exceptional I wanted to hug the HCA when I left (but don't worry I didn't).
I felt I was treated as an individual, safe and supported
(Someone even made a note of how to pronounce my name in my paperwork which was the cherry on the cake)."
"Dear Tim Hookway
I wanted to write and congratulate you on having been nominated for a Pride of Plymouth award 2018.
To be nominated for an award is a great reflection on how your dedication and commitment is perceived by others.
You were nominated for 'Patient Care' Award; the panel found the shortlisting in all categories incredibly difficult and although on this occasion you were not the recipient of the award, the recognition of your nomination alone is fantastic.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work and great efforts. It was a real pleasure to read what was written about you and your commitment, your nomination is attached for you and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did. I am sure you feel proud to have been nominated and the hospital is undoubtedly a better place for having able and dedicated colleagues such as yourself."
(Letter from Pride of Plymouth team on behalf of Ann James, Chief Executive, Derriford Hospital, Plymouth)
Nomination: Tim Hookway, Patient's Choice Award, Gynaecology at Derriford Hospital
The patient nominated Mr Hookway because: "Firstly, he did what he said he would do and kept to his timings 100%. If I was told to expect an appointment within 2 weeks for example, I got one. He is caring and considerate and explains everything that is going to happen, without giving false hope or dressing it up. I felt involved in the process and was treated like an individual, and not a number."
"My wife and I wanted to pass on our sincere thanks and praise to some of the fabulous people you have working for you. Recently C. had to have a hysterectomy and some other complications dealt with, the care we received from the superb Mr Hookway, Lisa the appointment booking manager, the wonderful anaesthetist, the bowel surgeon, the operating theatre team, the ward sister and team on Fal ward and the lovely team on Meavy was all utterly brilliant. My apologies I can't name check them personally, I was a mess on the day and did not take everything in as I should have.
As you can imagine it was a very stressful time for C. and me, but Mr Hookway was the personification of professionalism, yet, never losing the vital personal touch. I cannot recommend or say thank you enough for all he did. As Jehovah's Witnesses we understand that our stand on blood is not universally understood or accepted, yet it was not an issue and everyone was most supportive, for which we were most grateful.
I wanted you to know that you are lucky to have some truly superb staff working for you and we really value the fantastic care we were given.
(Letter to Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust)
"I would like to express my appreciation and sincere thanks to all the staff, and to yourself, for all the support that both I and L. have recently received, especially today.
The many kindnesses extended to me and especially to L., have been 'beyond the call of duty'."
