Department: Management

Position: Hospital Manager Ellern Mede Derby

I am extremely passionate and driven about what I do, stemming I believe from growing up with a sister whom has learning disabilities. Because of this, I have always put the patient at the heart of everything I do. I believe having your voice heard, being empowered to make decisions about your care and treatment and being offered the highest standards of care are basic fundamentals.

I am equally passionate about creating ‘positive & inclusive cultures’ which empower staff and families to be fully involved and help drive the service forward.

In my career to date I have worked in various settings including acute, forensics, learning disabilities, complex community care and a secondment to the local Provider Collaborative to role out the LD & Autism standards within the region. In my carer to date I have been instrumental in achieving accreditation to the Royal College of Psychiatry for both the AIMS & QNLD awards.

I have joined Ellern Mede Derby at a particularly challenging time but have been welcomed and met with an extremely caring and dedicated team who are committed to driving the service forward and I am extremely confident that together we will achieve great things.
