Exceptional People Awards

Consultant psychiatrist Dr Francesca Battisti at the Cotswold House Eating Disorder Service in Marlborough has become highly commended for her motivating leadership and ‘ can do this’ attitude. Vicky Bradley, Acting Modern Matron at the Cotswold House told: “Dr Battisti was presented with the highly commended certificate in our team meeting to her great surprise! Dr Battisti is hugely appreciated by the ward and community team staff. She works so hard to give our patients the best care while always ensuring that staff are supported and listened to.” Dr Battisti had been nominated by sessional charge nurse Carol Bennett who wrote: “Francesca has provided the service with clear leadership and support throughout the pandemic, utilising her own skills and personal strengths to support the team as we moved through the challenges of these past two years. “The one thing that stands out for me in the past six months has been how she has nurtured a sense of ‘we can all do this’ around a very challenging clinical picture within the inpatient service. When staff were floundering and short of energy and hope for a particular individual, Francesca kept us buoyant with her calm, kind, and ever positive outlook on the situation. We are so pleased that we were guided and led by her to get the optimum outcome for the patient, their family and ultimately the rest of our patients in the future. “We are happy to reflect how she led us through this particular struggle, giving us constant reminders of how we can do this, never losing faith in the team she leads, and we have all grown stronger as a result. Her constant reminders of our own strengths have motivated and reminded us of what a privilege it is to work here.”
