Greenwich Training Hub Lead Nurse
I have worked in the NHS for 15 years, I started my Nursing career in A&E at Queen Mary’s Hospital (QMH) in Sidcup and have also worked for Oxleas as a District Nurse and South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAMB) as a Clinical Supervisor.
I have been a General Practice Nurse in Greenwich since 2013. I am also currently studying MSc Advanced Nurse Practitioner. I love my GPN Role as I really do enjoy the day to day patient contact, as much of a cliché I do enjoy helping people and making someone’s life a little easier, I enjoy the autonomy of the role and working within a supportive team.
My role as one of the Nurse Leads since 2017 is also very rewarding and fulfilling offering support, advice and guidance to over 100 clinical staff across Greenwich, supporting students and staff with continuing professional development, helping to build resilience and offering training that will enable our clinicians to deliver great care to Greenwich residents. I am passionate that General Practice Nurses & HCSW have a voice in Primary care and am always seeking ways in which we can raise our profile.
Greenwich Training Hub Lead Nurse
I have worked in the NHS for 12 years, initially as a Receptionist at my local GP surgery. I then went on to train as a nurse at Kings College London.
After qualifying as a nurse, I spent the first few years working at St Thomas' Hospital Medical Admissions Ward, I then transitioned into General Practice Nursing, which is where my passion lies.
I was appointed as one of the Lead Nurses for Greenwich in 2017.
I am passionate about supporting my colleagues in Primary Care, whether that be through one to one advice or encouraging individual growth and career progression.
I strongly believe that feeling supported in your career is one of the most important aspects of job satisfaction.
Despite our colleagues working across many differently practices, I like to think of myself and Claire as a bridge that brings us all together as one large team.
Greenwich Training Hub Nurse Facilitator
I have 17 years of professional experience between the private sector and the NHS. I began my nursing career in 2004 as an oncology nurse in the private sector and worked through to clinical nurse specialist in Palliative care in 10years. In 2014 I transitioned to become a midwife and worked in a very busy high risk obstetric labour ward for 5years.
The role of a practice nurse resonated with me in 2018 and I embarked on a career change. Today I am in a job I look forward to every morning. My main role is to support nurses training and student placement. I look forward to improving the student placement experience and giving place for the student voice while supporting their requirements, expectations, highs and lows of placement experience in primary care.
With experience across a broad range of fields and demographics, I am keenly aware of the need for training commitment to produce high quality, knowledgeable conscientious and confident clinicians to ensure the continuance of a robust NHS service in the future.
