Debi, originally from London, has a degree in critical care nursing and has worked in the area of intensive and critical care throughout her strong career, which spans fifteen years.
After graduating as a nurse in 1998 from Homerton College in Cambridge, Debi worked her way up from deputy sister to ward manager whilst working in Guernsey, before joining The Glen in November 2010 as Senior Sister.
Debi will report to Louise Daniel, The Glen’s long-standing matron, and will act as a clinical link between departments, addressing any issues which arise and helping Louise with the smooth running of the hospital. There are now 70 beds for patients at the hospital, including an intensive care unit.
Commenting on her new appointment, Debi said: “This new role is a step up for me and I’m looking forward to embracing the challenge. My experience working on the wards with the excellent staff at The Glen gives me a head start. At The Glen the patient always comes first.”
Rob Anderson, hospital director, said: “We’re delighted that Debi has accepted this new role and her experience stands her in good stead to become a key part of The Glen’s senior clinical team.
Debi will be working with Louise, who has over 20 years’ experience working within the hospital, and we expect to see her plan a key role in helping The Glen retain its reputation for outstanding outcomes for patients based on the highest nursing standards.”
The Glen is a centre for cardiac and neurological excellence and employs 286 staff, with around 300 consultants also operating from the premises.
