I am a registered Nurse and prior to joining SCAS I worked in emergency care. I have been employed by the Trust since 2009 and I currently work in EOC North as the Clinical Support Desk Manager. In addition to looking after the CSD team I also have a wider role as part of the EOC leadership team particularly when it comes to clinical matters or staff health and wellbeing.
During my career I have experienced a number of changes in the way that healthcare is managed and delivered and I am looking forward to being able to understand a bit more about how certain decisions are made.
I feel that the EOC’s are sometimes incorrectly viewed as closed and out of bounds places and I think the role of staff governor will enable me to dispel this and to be able to become a useful link between the emergency operations centers and the wider organisation.
