I’m a Senior Theatre Practitioner in Urology Day Case Theatres at the Royal Derby Hospital.

There’s lots of variety in my role as I don’t just work in theatres – I can be in recovery and anaesthetics as well. Throughout my day I manage the theatre list ensuring the skill mix of staff is correct for each procedure and also that the correct instrumentation is prepped. I make sure I’m available to help and answer any questions – there’s lots of problem solving involved!

As part of a safer surgery project I get involved in risk assessments and help to implement any changes required. I’m responsible for disseminating information to staff at all levels to make sure we continually improve our safety standards.

I’ve been here for 4 years and working at the Royal Derby has changed my outlook on my role. I’ve been given opportunities I’d never had previously which have helped broaden my horizons. Derby have really invested in me

For anyone considering joining us at the Royal Derby Hospital I’d say go for it – come and experience what it’s like to work here at our open day on 2 December, our roles are ever evolving and we’re supported to drive forward innovative ideas.
