Senior Radiographer and orphanage volunteer
Hilary is a radiographer from our BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital. Every year she devotes her time and annual leave to volunteer at an orphanage in Tanzania. Whatever she does, Hilary's compassion shines through.
At the orphanage Hilary does all that she can to help, she helps with painting classrooms and teaching English and helps the women who run the orphanage with their chores.
She also devotes much of her time to showing love, attention and reassurance whenever she can. When back at home, she stays in touch with messages and birthday cards.
At work, Hilary’s kind-hearted nature continues, as she cares for patients before their scans, at what can be quite a distressing time for a patient. It is Hilary’s compassion and reassurance that really helps to make a difference.
Registered Nurse and full-time carer
Karene first met Audrey in the 1980s when they were neighbours in Scotland and have remained firm friends ever since.
When Audrey's only son died, it left her without a next of kin, when Karene stepped in to offer her support.
Karene's care and compassion is reflected in many different ways. Whether it's going out for lunch with Audrey, arranging appointments or to simply spending time together, Karene is always there for Audrey.
With over 40 years of experience in Nursing, Karene brings the same care and dedication to her work. Her patients are at the heart of everything she does, every day.
Clinical Services Manager - Theatre and football coach
Bavesh is a Theatre Manager from our BMI The London Independent Hospital. He spends his weekends coaching his local football team and his work time leading a talented team of theatre practitioners.
From a very young age, Bavesh played local football competitively, the team spirit, drive and camaraderie of the football team was what he enjoyed the most.
Sadly, following a neck injury when he was 16 he was no longer able to play competitively so he gave coaching a shot.
Becoming a coach at such a young age has fuelled Bavesh's passion for leadership and motivating people to succeed.
At BMI Healthcare, Bavesh's desire and drive to lead has resulted in him having some of the most advanced theatre practitioners.
Clinical Services Manager - Physiotherapist and Team GB physiotherapist
Louise is our Clinical Services Manager in the physiotherapy department at our BMI Hendon Hospital. She has spent time abroad practising physiotherapy for Team GB men's wheelchair basketball.
Whatever she's doing, Louise takes her inspiration from the team.
Louise was the Lead Physiotherapist for Team GB Men's wheelchair basketball. She travelled all over the world, as well as the UK for training camps, World Championships, European Championships and preparation camps for the Paralympics.
During her travels, Louise was the sole healthcare professional to travel with the athletes and was the first line of contact when dealing with all medical or physiotherapy related issues. Louise treated an array of injuries, such as muscular injuries, head injuries and infections.
Louise often comments on how inspiring it was to work with the athletes. She says that "to say they are disabled does the athletes an injustice when in my opinion they are the most "able" people in so many ways."
At BMI Healthcare, Louise feels inspired by not only the team that she works with, but also by the patients that she treats and their determination to feel better.
