What is your job title?
Senior staff nurse
At which Ramsay site do you work?
The Yorkshire Clinic in Bradford, UK
For how long have you worked at Ramsay?
For 38 years since, May 17th 1982!
What is your favourite thing about being a nurse?
A lot of things, the fact that you can make someone feel better and the patient feedback is lovely. Being a nurse you are in a position unlike any other job where you can make a big difference to people, and most of the time improve people’s quality of life.
What are you passionate about?
I feel very proud of my PIN, (personal registration number from the Nursing and Midwifery Council) because I worked very hard to get it and I feel that having a pin in days gone by you got a lot of respect from others because you were a nurse and your pin represented that.
What are your aspirations for the future?
Enjoying retirement hopefully! I’m hoping to do something called ‘befriending’ which is done on a voluntary basis and involves supporting older people who are lonely, spending time talking to them and providing company for them and a listening ear.
