What is your job title?

Senior Sister

At which Ramsay site do you work?

The Yorkshire Clinic, Bingley, Bradford

For how long have you worked at Ramsay?

4 years, although I did take a 7 month break to go travelling.

What is your favourite thing about being a nurse?

Being a nurse truly is the most rewarding job I could ask for. Every day there is a new challenge and you definitely do learn something new every day. Working with people is great, and working with like-minded people within the team is amazing.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about patients being looked after as if they were your own family and friends. We can normalise hospital seen as it is our daily work environment, but most of the times coming into hospital is a scary experience for most people. I always feel really proud when I discharge a patient who I have only just met and the sing the staffs praises for their care and compassion. It’s a privilege to be able to look after people when they are feeling vulnerable.

What are your aspirations for the future?

Currently I am half way through a combined masters in nursing, looking at cancer and palliative care and leadership and communication in nursing. I am excited to get that finished and use my research project to impact the team positively.
