East London Health & Care Partnership LIVE, A Career in Nursing

If you’re looking for a career for life that offers opportunities to work in a team to enhance the lives of others, where no one day is the same as the next, where your people skills are valued as much as your intelligence, nursing could be for you.

Nursing isn’t just about being a nurse in a uniform working in a hospital or on a ward, it can be about supporting people with learning disabilities in their homes, leading ground breaking health research, working in schools, visiting people with mental ill health at home or working in a nursing home or a primary care health centre. Nurses work in all parts of society, from conception to death. The country just wouldn’t run without nurses and we need more nurses to keep people well, to support them in ill health, to promote their recovery and to provide care at the end of life too.

This discussion will connect you to some of our nurses working in East London. They’ll share the highs and the lows. Be under no illusion nursing is tough, yet as real nurses will share it’s a career that’s hugely rewarding.

The live chat is always open next to the video player so feel free to leave us a question or comment and we’ll get it forwarded to the team from East London Health & Care Partnership.

  • Neil Fletcher

    Clinical Nurse Specialist for teenagers and young adults, Barts Health NHS Trust

    Hi, my name is Neil and I’m a nurse working as a Roald Dahl Clinical Nurse Specialist for teenagers and young adults.

    I am a registered general nurse for adults and I completed a further course to become a registered children’s nurse. I am lucky to have 2 registrations.

    Throughout my career I have worked in; ward areas, emergency departments, practice development, senior nurse role and clinical site management. I have a wide variety of experience.

    Currently one of my main areas of focus is to advise teams how they are supporting young people transitioning from children’s to adult services, across all specialities. This also involves how we can make the experience better for young people and young adults who come into hospital.

    Outside of work I do some voluntary work, enjoy yoga and play for a mixed netball team. I believe in a healthy work-life balance.

  • Ahunna Ogbulafor

    Paediatric nursing student, University of Greenwich

    My Name is Ahunna and I am a first year Paediatric Nursing student.

    I decided to change careers and study to be a Paediatric Nurse, having qualified as a biomedical scientist in 2014 and not really enjoying it. I worked in direct marketing for 3 years after that. Moving back to London, I worked in a mother and baby unit as a family support worker, working alongside social workers and other professions to carry out Child and Family Assessment.

    My time working at this mother and baby unit helped me realise my passion for caring and supporting children and their families and so I decided to pursue a career as a Children’s nurse. This would allow me to live out my passion but also do what I really enjoy, which is caring for people. There is a sense of fulfilment in being able to look after a sick child till recovery, and in Children’s nursing, you do not only look after the child, but you also look after the child’s family too.

    I have had the privilege of doing my clinical placement in a children’s ward, and although I am not qualified yet as a children’s nurse, it has not limited the caring role which I have been able to carry out for the patients. It has been an amazing experience so far, and I am glad I made the right decision to study as a Paediatric Nurse.

     

    I am musically skilled in playing the guitar and singing, I have found this to be an incredible skill on the ward, as children love music, and what better way to lift up their spirits.

  • Bridget D’Aliessio

    Clinical Nurse Specialist Palliative Care, Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Trust Hospital

    I have been in my current role since sept 2007, having been with the Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Trust (BHRUT) since I qualified in 1991. I’m passionate about palliative care and making a difference. I’m proud to be an ambassador for palliative care, BHRUT, nursing and the NHS. I have had experience working in surgery, and acute admissions where I attained my sister’s post. I then got my Ward Manager’s post working in gastro-intestinal/medical nursing. My interest in palliative care started and grew through personal experience and professional experience from being the pilot ward for the LCP. Palliative care and end of life care have been part of my life since and I’M still delighted and happy working within the field. I haven’t looked back ever since!
