I have worked full time both within the Primary Care Sector & Secondary Care for 21 years, currently based at the Rectory Road site undertaking a variety of health care roles.
Previously I worked in the Dermatology Department at Chesterfield Hospital for 10 years before moving to RPC for a new challenge.
My role as a dedicated HCA is to provide the best possible care for patients and enhance the RPC Clinical Team, regularly updating knowledge & skills in a rewarding profession.
I am an Assistant Practitioner.
Assistant Practitioners support the Practice Nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as Asthma checks, Phlebotomy (taking blood), Blood Pressure measurements, New Patient Checks, B12 and Pneumonia Injections, ECGs, Spirometrys, INRs, Diabetic Foot Checks (Low-Moderate Risk), Simple Dressings, Stitch and clip removal, CVD NHS Health Checks, Stocking Measurements and home visits.
I have worked for the NHS for 11 years, previously as a community phlebotomist, I then came to work at Rectory Road 9 years ago and have been here ever since. Over the years I have undertaken various tasks and this led me to complete my university degree as an AP at Derby University.
I work part time based at Inkersall surgery; I have worked for RPC now for 3 years doing the healthcare role. I previously worked at chesterfield royal hospital on a medical ward for 6 years.
I am very passionate about my job and providing the best care for my patients
