Although I keep my fingers in lots of pies, the range of experiences this provides has helped me put together what sometimes feels like a huge jigsaw. I'm still learning but I’ve learnt to value this and continue to improve my knowledge and skills whenever I can.
Developing Business solutions in line with core business processes, responsible for supporting managers across the Trust in the development of solutions contributing to Business Cases and Service Investment Proposal’s (SIP's).
Also the ICT Account Manager for the Clinical Support Division at the Trust.
I get the opportunity to work with senior managers and other healthcare professionals across the Trust in order to understand their business needs and IT requirements. Once needs are clearly understood I am then able to lead and support teams in delivering new and exciting technologies which provide real benefits.
I really enjoy my work and it's a real pleasure to get up in the morning and know that I can make a real difference to both Patients and Staff alike.
I’ll never forget a presentation delivered by Jan Sobieraj, the Managing Director of the NHS Leadership Academy. During the presentation he asked the audience what kind of fingerprint they will leave on people. I don't think I'll ever forget that; whatever I'm doing in my day job I try to leave a positive impression and have some kind of positive impact, even if just small one.
In summary the best piece of advice I can give is to grab every opportunity with both hands, be resilient and never give up!
