Spire Southampton Hospital has welcomed a new GP Liaison Manager, Sharon Nicholls. Sharon is working as part of the Business Development Team and will be working together with GP practices in the local area.
Sharon says: “I have worked in healthcare for the past 20 years. My experience is mainly in marketing, sales and communications.
“I have really enjoyed my first couple of months at Spire, the staff and consultants are so friendly and professional, everyone has made me feel very welcome. I would certainly feel very confident to come here as a patient.
“My role at Spire will involve strengthening the links between Spire and local GP practices through education and awareness of the services we provide. I have started by setting up a programme of education for the Southampton newly qualified GPs in conjunction with the Southampton GP tutors. My aim is to develop our relationships with general practice and support them individually with training and I hope to use our internal expertise to provide much needed support such as BLS training.
“I love the challenge of getting my teeth into a new area and meeting new people. I have found Spire to have a real ‘can do’ attitude which is very refreshing.”
