Why do you love working for the NHS?

I love feeling like I am helping people and making a difference.


How does flexible working make a difference to your life?

Flexible working allows me to do extra shifts in a different department to my own. It means I can maintain my skill in an area I have been trained but do not routinely perform in my full time NHS position.


What has been your proudest moment working for the NHS?

I feel my proudest moments working for the NHS are when I receive positive feedback on the service I have provided especially if that procedure was performed ina challenging situation. Also, the feeling of accomplishment when I have mastered a new procedure.


Did you always want to work in healthcare?

I originally trained in Nottingham and have always wanted to help people and work in the healthcare setting. I have recently changed trusts to be closer to family.


Tell us about your life outside of the hospital. Do you have any hobbies or interests?

I enjoy going to gym classes with my friends, seeing my family and reading. I also like to find new adrenaline activities that I have not done before.
