‘A WONDERFUL surgeon and colleague’ is how Carol Makin has been described by her nominator for the Angel of the Year Award.
Dr Brigid Hayden, who put her forward for the Ravenscroft-sponsored Pride of Guernsey award, said Miss Makin cares deeply about her patients’ wellbeing.
‘I have known Carol for six months, since starting in Guernsey as an obstetrician and gynaecologist,’ said Dr Hayden.
‘She welcomed me to the hospital and she has always been very supportive in providing advice in relation to the care of our mutual patients.
‘I have recently become more aware of the many ways in which Carol has taken forward the care of so many patients at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
‘She is extremely supportive to colleagues and takes on roles which advance patient care outside her own speciality.’
She added: ‘Carol and her husband Rob have very recently retired and they will both be greatly missed at the hospital.’
