Sterling Money Clip Sterling Silver Silver “I am responsible for several different wards and all that happens on them, from helping staff with problems, to investigating accidents or complaints, to simply talking to a patient. I also attend a lot of meetings; more than the other nurses, to help to look at what needs to happen across the whole hospital. It took me 10 years to get to be a Matron. It’s not something that happens overnight, and with it comes responsibility. I have to write reports, produce facts and figures for my wards and I am held accountable for what happens within all those areas.

I still get to see patients though, which I like, even though I do not look after them on a daily basis like the nurses. All the things I do, like going to meetings or writing reports, all help towards the standard of care we provide for patients. So I am still helping them.

I have to make a lot of decisions, so I need to keep up to date with what is happening nationally, and what, as an organisation we are doing well, or need to improve on. I have to change my thinking and focus by the hour as I have to be involved in so many different things that happen in the hospital.

Today, for example, we are looking at how we are going to introduce a new piece of equipment to the wards that the staff need to be trained on. I am going to a meeting so we can look at how this will go across the whole hospital.

I am then going to meet a group of student nurses for their induction. Then, I will go and visit my areas to see what is happening there; how many beds we have free and who is coming in and going home. Communication is the main part of my role; sharing the correct information with the right people, at the right time to ensure services flow.

Sterling Sterling Silver Money Silver Clip No two days are the same, and I need to be confident and organised in my work to support the people, care teams and patients we provide services to. It’s good to know I can make a difference.”
