Why do you love working for the NHS?

Fulfilling, rewarding and challenging! The NHS has enabled me to meet so many people and of all different age categories; of whom I may work with or care for on a day to day basis! You get a heart-warming feeling when you’ve put a smile on a patients face when you know they’re not feeling good at the moment. It’s a privilege to be a part of the national health service, even after a stressful day of either a busy ward, clinic or A&E, at the end of the shift it’s nice to know you’ve helped somebody in any way it may be! I love working for the NHS because I get to develop my professional and personal skills and also because I get a heart-warming feeling that I might have made someone’s day a little bit better after every shift.

 

 

How does flexible working make a difference to your life?

Being a flexible worker enables me to manage my home life sufficiently. Being a carer at home as well as work can sometimes be stressful but I’m able to balance out work by seeing dates I can pick up a shift and balance life at home as well

 

What has been your proudest moment working for the NHS?

Joy when seeing a patient who has been on a ward for so long being rehabilitated to walk again after a stroke and then walking out of the hospital with their wife after being discharged was my proudest moment. Knowing I had helped with their recovery was the proudest moment I am yet to receive.

 

Tell us about your past

Paramedic science or adult nursing. Two subjects I can’t yet make a decision on my university choices. Both rewarding careers but I simply can’t make a decision! All members of my family have been involved with the NHS while working at some point in their lives! Eeekk! I’ll have to decide soon!

 

Tell us about your life outside of the hospital

4 dogs, a boyfriend and a huge family lifestyle! Sunday dinner at my Nans with all the family and plenty of walkies for the dogs! Netball on a Wednesday with my teammates if I’m not working! Simple, but a very happy life.
