I’ve lived in Nottinghamshire all my life and currently live in Carlton, around 4 miles from the Nottingham City Hospital campus. I currently teach our new starters on the Health Care Skills Academy and lead on the Care Certificate which is a new national requirement for non-registered frontline staff. This is a very diverse role which enables me to practice my passion of teaching whilst also ensuring the best standards of patient care for our Trust. In this role I also get to support new non-registered staff in their new role and help them to become confident members of the team.

It always seemed an obvious choice as it is the local hospital and the chance to work on a fast paced admissions as a newly qualified nurse unit was an exciting opportunity at the time when I was looking for jobs. There was always something nice about working for an organisation that is so much a part of my community cares for all my family and friends and was even the place I was born. NUH is a great Trust to work for, there are so many learning opportunities all staff help each other out. There are also many perks for example childcare vouchers which have been a great help and quick access to staff physiotherapy service if needed.
