|Thank you for taking some time out of your busy day to read my first Sherwood Voices blog. I am very excited to share the news about our new Internal Transfer Scheme, which I have been working on as part of my Clinical Fellow secondment.
But first, a bit of background into my role. I started my Chief Nurse Clinical Fellow secondment in March, and I also continue to work clinically as a Specialist Physiotherapist on the Stroke Unit.
Previously, as a Band 5 Physiotherapist, I worked in many different areas and specialities including Musculoskeletal, Cardiothoracics, Healthcare of the Older Person, Respiratory Medicine, Neuro Surgery and Stroke.
I have worked with diverse members of the Multi-disciplinary Team under different leadership styles, and I believe this experience has allowed me to gain the valuable knowledge, skills and passion to progress in my own career. It ultimately influenced my decision on where to specialise and this is the reason why I applied for the Chief Nurse Clinical Fellow project.
For the past three months, I have carefully considered how the Internal Transfer Scheme pilot should be implemented at Sherwood, and with the consultation and support of numerous people within Sherwood and in the wider NHS (thank you to you all), we have now launched, which is incredibly exciting. I am delighted to share that the pilot is now open until the Wednesday 8 September.
