Stanly Thomas, Data Manager and dedicated Trust diversity champion

Stanly started working at  Cambridge University Hospitals in September 2005 when he moved from India to join his wife who was already working as a nurse here since 2004 (recruited from India). His first job was as an Administrator for the Clinical Research Unit. Now he is a dedicated Data Manager in the trust's research and development team working with a small team of researchers at Addenbrooke’s who are keen to find a permanent cure for Cancer. He is a fantastic role model for all staff and very well liked by all who know and work with him. He is always very calm, cheerful and happy. He has been a very active member of the Equality and Diversity staff group and BAME staff network giving his time voluntarily as a diversity champion to attend meetings and provide ideas. He has played a key role in organising our Trust’s  diversity celebration events with the Equality and Diversity lead both at our Windrush celebration event in July 2015 celebrating 10 years long service of staff recruited from Kerala India, welcoming our newest overseas recruits and our “One CUH 84 nationalities Cultural diversity celebration” in July 2017 that was held  to launch the Trust’s BAME staff network. Stanly organised a fabulous staff profile exhibition of many posters profiling diverse staff  at CUH with text and photos. I am delighted to nominate him as I could not do my Equality and Diversity work without active diversity champions such as Stanly. Thank you Stanly.

Well done Stanly, you are always a pleasure to work with. Despite my many queries, letters and phone calls you are always patient and helpful!

Stanly is the calm and approachable person at the end of the telephone line whenever I call to ask for help with recruiting my Partner patients. No question is left unanswered. I am never left to feel I should already know the answer to my question (when maybe I should). He is always a source I can rely on whenever I am in the ‘heat of the moment’ with a Partner trial problem. He is a credit to Cambridge Cancer Trials Centre/Addenbrooke’s Hospital. Congratulations on your nomination Stanly.
