Clinical Services Manager
Having qualified in Adult Nursing in 2013 following completion of my studies at Canterbury Christ Church University, I swiftly went into an acute nursing setting starting my career within the acute stroke unit at Pembury Hospital, Royal Tunbridge Wells.
As a staff nurse I specialised in all aspects of stroke care and particularly having responsibility for emergency thrombolysis treatment, attending calls and assessing patients presenting with acute stroke symptoms, working in close partnership with the Consultant within the emergency department.
Following this I went straight into Emergency Nursing, working at University Hospital Lewisham and then Kings College Hospital, London. Specialising in all areas of the emergency department for example, streaming, triage, minors, majors and resuscitation, where I was assessing and implementing emergency care protocols and pathways, as well as in the capacity of a sister and overseeing the department managerially.
Having specialised in emergency nursing and major trauma, throughout this time I have undertaken further university study within this specialty, including developing my core clinical skills as well as advanced nursing skills as a seasoned emergency nurse. In addition to this I have further qualifications in evidence-based practice and mentorship.
I then went onto spend some time within the private health care sector as the senior sister overseeing Surgical wards, and the high dependency unit.
Afterwards I transitioned into the adult social care sector which I have found exceptionally satisfying and challenging. Initially working as a clinical lead nurse and deputy manager for a high nursing care needs home within Camden. This post was most recent, prior to joining signature Beckenham as Clinical Services Manager in July 2021.
I pride myself on ensuring high care standards and the delivery of individualised, person centred care through safe, and effective standards of practice aligned to regulatory requirements.
I am looking forward to the opening of the new signature home in Beckenham immensely and I am proud to be part of such an exciting, and vibrant team.
