Healthcare

I’m a Healthcare Scientist Associate (HSA) currently working in Oxford. I specalise in Cardiac Rhythm Management, where I help manage and maintain the Remote Monitoring service, which monitors over 1,000 patients. I also assist with inpatient checks and the running of the CRM department. 

Volunteering

I currently serve as a Trustee and the Communications Executive of a national charity. I also volunteer for the local hospital radio station and have been volunteering since 2006. I’m also a Young Trustee Movement Champion and believe young people should be on Charity Trustee boards.

life as a healthcare scientist Associate

I began working clinically as a Healthcare Scientist Assistant in 2016 and can undertake a variety of observations and technical tests. From performing ECGs, 2nd person treadmills, assisting with CPETs and taking the usual obs (Height, weight, BP, sp02 etc). I also have experience of Nuclear Cardiology, orientating patients on the scanner and processing their images from Myocrdioal Perfusion scans.

As a Healthcare Scientist Associate in CRM, my role specalises in pacemakers, ICDs, CRT-Ds and ILRs. Mainly focusing on the remote monitoring databases, I also help the wider team by triaging inpatient checks, asssiting with checks alongside Cardiac Physiologists and I’m the first point of contact for all remote patients.

hospital broadcasting association

trustee & communications Exec (2015 - Present)

I began volunteering at the Hospital Broadcasting Association in 2015 as the Home Counties Regional Rep, looking after approx 15 stations in the area. I’ve also been lucky to spend some time producing the organisations On-Air magazine.

I’m now a Trustee of this national charity, ensuring we work for our members and charitable objectives. I’m also the Communications Executive, leading on the stategic planning of the organisations internal and external marketing & publicity.

Radio Cherwell

Volunteer (2006- Present)

It was my interest in media and a call for volunteers back in 2006 that encouraged me to volunteer for Radio Cherwell.

I’ve held various roles and positions at Oxford’s Hospital Radio station, incluidng Publicity Officer, Trustee, Programme Controller and have worked on countless programmes, including the flagship Children’s programme, which I hosted for 7 years.

I now host a Saturday afternoon programme and cover shows when required.

Young Trustees Movement

Young Trustees Movement Champion (Ongoing)

Less than 3% of Charity Trustees are under the age of 30 and the Young Trustees Movement want to change that.

I’ve been a Young Trustee for as long as I can remember and firmly believe there is a place for those aged 30 and under on Trustee boards and they, in turn, are the future of Charities in the UK.

As a Young Trustees Movement Champion, I help shape the national movement and share my story at events nationwide.
