 “I have had the privilege of working alongside Miguel for many years. His genuine caring approach is constantly displayed, not only to this patients and colleagues, but these qualities continue in his everyday lifestyle."

"Miguel is committed to providing quality care each time he arrives to work; he is a fantastic nurse, shows genuine compassion and respect. He is willing to work in all areas of the hospital, be redeployed and is never hesitant to work extra hours if the hospital is short staffed. He is super polite and friendly and always has a happy demeanour with an infectious smile."

"Whilst not at work, these characteristics continue, as he dedicates his time to assist stranded backpackers find safe host accommodation, job possibilities and even food hampers via his Adopt a Backpacker Facebook page."
