Although it sounds like a cliché I have always wanted to be a nurse, my nanna was a nurse and my mother is a nurse. When I was young I used to love hearing all about my nanna’s stories from her nursing career and how she used to care for her patients and knew I wanted to follow in her footsteps.

I graduated from Northumbria University in 2011 and joined the Trust as a staff nurse in haematology and rheumatology, where I worked for 6 years before moving to work on PIU. During my work in the Unit I became Educational Lead, a role I particularly enjoyed. I was then lucky enough to take on the role of Trainee Nursing Associate Facilitator, which has involved me supporting Nursing Associates with their training and being a link between the Trust and the University.

Recently I have taken on the role of Junior Sister within Clinical Informatics, where I am working with the Team to help roll out Nervecentre. I am really excited that the Trust is getting Nervecentre as it is a real time patient management system that will bring many benefits to help streamline processes, improve patient safety and care. Two of the features that the system has are known as ‘track’ and ‘trigger’. The ‘track’ element is very similar to VitalPAC and allows us to electronically record and store observations. However, the way that it differs from VitalPAC is the ‘trigger’ element which alerts the appropriate clinician when a patients NEWS2 score reaches 2 or above.

One of my roles within the team is to be a clinical voice within the team and to facilitate the Clinical Advisory Group, to help ensure that decisions made regarding Nervecentre are all helping to improve frontline clinical care.

 Prior to Nervecentre being launched I will be heavily involved in the training of staff across the hospital. We are currently preparing a range of training packages for frontline staff at all levels that will be using the new system.  As part of the training I will be helping to deliver bitesize training sessions within the wards. As a clinician I appreciate how busy colleagues are out on the wards so we will bring training and support to them in their work environment, to minimise disruption to their work.

I am really excited about the launch of Nervecentre as it will be a real game changer to healthcare in the hospital and as a nurse my priority is and always will be the care of our patients.
