The Panel

George Smith


George went to school locally and considered medicine or physiotherapy as career options. George’s Mum is a nurse and encouraged considering an AHP role in part due to the better work/life balance it would afford for someone who is also a keen and regular sailor. George studied at the University of Nottingham before getting a rotational job in Portsmouth in 2015. He then moved to Brighton and specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. More recently George moved back to Kent to continue his career closer to home, highlighting the flexibility and choice afforded by a job in physiotherapy! My role now involves assessing and treating patients with joint and muscle pain, supervising physiotherapy new graduates and students and working towards a more specialist role in diagnostics.


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.

Dr Anita Green

Associate Director of Nurse Education, Mental Health

I started my mental health nurse training in 1981 having completed my Registered General Nurse training and working on medical wards.  After qualifying as a Registered Mental Nurse I worked in acute mental health in patient and community services.  I was sponsored to do a full time degree for two years in 1991 which then took me into full time university teaching; mainly, up until 2008, as a Lecturer (Clinical) linked to a drug and alcohol service. I completed a master’s level qualification in 1997.

From 1995 to 2004 I was involved with drug and alcohol training and education programmes for nurses, nurse teachers and doctors based in St. Petersburg, Russia.  It was a privilege to work with colleagues in Russia and I gained a huge amount personally and professionally.  From 2001-2004 this work became my doctoral thesis.

I joined Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust as a Dual Diagnosis Nurse Consultant in 2008. My responsibilities included working with people who presented to the service with drug and/or alcohol and mental health issues.  In 2014 I moved to the Education and Training Department as a Nurse Consultant in Education and Training.  I became an Associate Director of Care Professions Education and lead on care professions education which included nursing, psychology and allied health professionals.  I held a clinical readership with the University of Brighton at the time.  In 2015 I became Associate Director of Nurse Education.  I was appointed as a visiting professor at the University of Surrey in 2018.  I am passionate about nursing and being a nurse and have had a wide-ranging and interesting career – which is what nursing offers.  It is the best career in the world!
