Claire Sullivan talks about being a Senior Theatre Practitioner at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.
I recently applied for a senior position and was successful, so I look forward to many more years in my new and exciting role.
I was attracted to work for Spire because I wanted a change from working for the NHS. I relocated to Cambridge from Stoke and found there were vacancies here. I used to work as a Theatre Practitioner at the Universty Hospital of North Staffordshire, spending 5 years in trauma, orthopaedics, neuro and ophthalmic theatres. Previous to this, I worked at the Countess of Chester Hospital for 5 years as a Theatre Practitioner in all specialities doing scrub and recovery.
I have been at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital for nearly 2 year and I really enjoy my role as Theatre Practitioner and Infection Control Link. I recently applied for a senior position (Team Leader) and was successful, so I look forward to many more years in my new and exciting role.
