Trainee Operating Department Practitioner, Mount Stuart Hospital, Torquay
Before joining Ramsay, I worked as a green grocer so had no previous healthcare experience! I wanted a change and a challenge so started as a Health Care Assistant at Ramsay six years ago, working in Theatres. Ramsay’s hospitals are generally smaller than NHS ones and this helps us to deliver high standards of patient care. Ramsay also provides good prospects for its employees and this has enabled me to undertake a number of different qualifications. Ramsay supported me in achieving an NVQ level 3 in Perioperative Care and I am now studying for an Operating Department Practitioner degree through the Open University. The best things about my role now as a Trainee ODP are the diversity of the role and the team of people that I work with.
Motto: Be organised!
