What does your job involve?
I work at Heatherwood Court. My nursing role is probably very similar to anywhere else; supporting my Unit Manager and working with the Staff Nurses that report to me, so that we all work as a team to provide safe and effective care for our service users.
Why did you join Ludlow Street Healthcare?
I’ve been with Ludlow Street Healthcare for over 6 years and joined as a newly qualified Staff Nurse. When I finished my training I was really interested in working in a forensic environment and Heatherwood seemed to offer the perfect opportunity. And it’s worked out the way I’d hoped; the clinicians and MDTs here are excellent and I have learnt so much from them
What’s the best part of your job?
I really get a buzz out of supporting the junior staff in my team. It’s great to be able to pass on my knowledge and experience to help people, just like I was helped and mentored when I joined.
