Highlights from Lisa’s presentation:
“One thing that particularly attracted me to work with Hallam Medical as Chief Nurse, were the Hallam Medicals values. They really are at the centre of everything they do as a team, and they do really make them who they are.”
“I am responsible for both clinical governance and safeguarding working with the team, clients and clinicians to ensure we deliver on these important agendas.”
“I am still a practising Advanced Nurse Practitioner, ensuring that I work at least one shift a month to ensure my practise and knowledge is still up to date and relevant.”
“I work very closely with our trusted partners and attend regular meetings and support them as required, expanding my own knowledge and appreciation of other nursing pathways.”
“By working closely with our partners and horizon scanning we can be ahead of changes and develop our solutions and workforce accordingly.”
“I view everyday as I always have and whether in uniform or out of uniform, I am not only representing Hallam Medical but also the nursing profession.
