The Training Hub is an organization funded by Health Education England to provide workforce & training support across the Royal Borough of Greenwich, working in partnership with the Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group, the University of Greenwich, the Oxleas NHS Trust, the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, and the Royal Borough of Greenwich as local authority.

Ruth Keel

Greenwich Training Hub Programme Lead

As the Training Hub Programme Lead, I specialise in designing training and education for all primary care staff in the Borough of Greenwich. My strong skills are building rapport, organising large scale events, and consulting on Wellness.

My NHS background is in change, lean and project management. In the past I have held roles as a Senior Sister and Clinical Nurse Specialist. These experiences give me a unique view of patient and client satisfaction, organisational development and have shaped the way I approach the design and delivery of complex projects.

In my roles as a senior member of the nursing and commissioning teams, I have led the development and implementation of multiple, high-level projects across the NHS. Each role I have undertaken has rewarded me with greater responsibility and the opportunity to assess, design, and shape the delivery and provision of care.

I am a confident public speaker and I enjoy mentoring, facilitating and supporting teams and individuals. I am driven, focused and adopt a creative approach to creating education for Primary Care staff.

Claire O'Connor

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.

Laura Davies

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.
