Angela, Ophthalmic Nurse

Angela - life story 184x260I transferred to Swindon from Reading six years ago and never looked back.

I thoroughly enjoy working at the hospital due to the diverse environment and modern workplace facilities.

I go to work with a smile on my face because I know I'll be greeted by the friendly faces of my colleagues.

I am passionate about helping people and in my role as an ophthalmic nurse I play an active role in transforming the lives of patients every day.

When a patient comes to us, we work as a team to ensure we not only improve their vision but their quality of life.

The outstanding management team have encouraged me to achieve things I never believed I could.

I was new to ophthalmology, yet I am currently training in ophthalmic nursing at a Masters level.

This was due to the leadership that encouraged me to strive for self-improvement and the desire to learn more about the profession.

However, it is not only qualifications I have gained from Great Western but a wealth of experience which has aided me in my personal development.

As for the location, I think Swindon is a great place to live and work - there's an abundance of countryside and affordable housing which makes it ideal.

Nonetheless, it's the people who truly make my commute worthwhile.

We have patients originally from the Swindon area travelling back from Wales and elsewhere simply for the quality of care they receive when they're with us.

I feel proud to be a part of the team.

Great People. Great Place. Great Western Hospitals.
