  • Sarah Branch

    Oncology Matron, Nursing

    My name is Sarah Branch I am the Oncology matron at the Royal Surrey county Hospital.

    The reason I wanted to become a nurse is because I looked after my Grandmother when I was 15 before she went to a nursing home. I knew I wouldn’t have been someone to sit at a desk all day and I liked making people feel comfortable and seeing them well looked after and cared for. I like interacting with people and making what can be a very scary situation less frightening.

    I first started my nurse training at the university of Surrey in 2002. Before I started Uni I went to Guildford College and did an AVCE in Health and social care. This allowed me to get the qualification to get into University but it also gave me experience in hospitals and within the public sector to ensure that I made the correct decision for my career.

  • Tracey Croft

    Lead & Practice Development ENP, Nursing

    I have always had a passion for emergency nursing since my qualification in 2002. I am motivated and have continued to develop myself personally and professionally, building on knowledge and experience; completing a BSc Hons in Emergency Care. My career has encompassed cardiac and orthopaedic specialities as well as emergency nursing. I found myself enjoying teaching and supporting students and new staff members, leading by example and using evidence based care. I am now in a practice development role, which enables me to use my listening skills and support the staff more effectively.

  • Mark Wheeler

    Clinical Simulation Technician, Ambulance Service

    In April 2000 following completing a BTEC National Diploma in Public Services, I joined Surrey Ambulance Service as a 999 Call Operator in the Emergency Operations Centre.  After a short time, I was promoted to Resource Dispatcher (responsible for sending the ambulance’s), within 18 months and continued in this role for 7 yrs.  During this time, I would also take on the role of Duty Supervisor, meaning that I would be in charge of that shift.  During this time, Surrey Ambulance Service along with Sussex and Kent Ambulance Services, joined to create South East Coast Ambulance Service.

    In 2008, I decided that it was time for a change.  I wanted to be able to do more, rather than just send an ambulance. I wanted to be there actually helping, so I trained as Trainee Emergency Medical Technician.  After my first year, I qualified as an EMT.  In this period, I have experienced many different and sometimes difficult situations.  Also some very rewarding situations, like where I have even been able to help deliver my own children through this training.

    For the past 18 months, I have ventured into a new side of the ambulance service.  I am now supporting the development of simulation training within the ambulance service.  Although, simulation has been used within the NHS for a number of years, It is a new venture for ambulance service, not just in South East Coast, but to all Ambulance trust.  Hoping this will help not only training new staff, but current staff as well, but offering refresher sessions, and making it as realistic as possible.
