The Role: As part of a brand new team, our aim is to support and facilitate the learning of individual staff, teams and departments across the Trust. As Locality-Based Educators, we will establish and build positive relationships across wards, departments and divisions, visibly supporting and enhancing the training and development needs of all grades of Nursing, Medical and Allied health professionals.
My Experience: I trained and qualified at Blackburn and worked on trauma and orthopaedic wards as a staff nurse and ward manager for nearly 20 years at the ‘Infirmary’. I then became a Clinical Nurse Specialist in acute pain management at Royal Bolton Hospital and have just spent a period of time as a lecturer in nursing at the University of Manchester. Where I taught undergraduate (student nurses), post Registration and post graduate nurses. Education and training has always been a key feature of my practice and I am passionate about ensuring that all grades of staff have the knowledge and skills to provide safe, effective and personal care.
