A mixture of my love for science and compassion for patient care.
Describe what you do?
I work in the microbiology department at the Wrexham Maelor. The pandemic mostly found me focusing on molecular testing for virology but now it’s a mix of bacteriology for sepsis pathways and viral screening for inpatients and outpatients.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I love the job satisfaction of venting and gram staining blood cultures, using microscopy and molecular platforms to detect specific organisms.
What would you say to someone thinking about a career in the NHS?
Go for it, it’s not easy but there is a lot of job satisfaction and pride with every test.
How would you describe the NHS in one word?
It looks like you’re visiting from outside the UK, would you like to be redirected to the international page?
