Our Staff Stories

Martin Schofield - Respiratory Nurse

When did you first start working in healthcare & where did you do your training?

I began my nurse training in 1993 in Harrogate in Yorkshire.

I worked in Manchester and the Southport.

In 1999 I then joined FGH, worked in ED for several years then left in 2010 to work in the community and then came back in March 2015

Ashutosh Kale - Consultant Paediatrician

What was it that made you want to go into the profession you’re in now?

My father was a doctor and my role model as a child, and that’s why I followed in his footsteps. I like to help and treat children and hence I became a paediatrician.

Debbie Collins - Ward Manager

What do you enjoy most about your career?

I would have to say that the overall team atmosphere is one of the things that I love the most It is such a dynamic environment and by working here there is a real opportunity to actually have an impact on the quality of care in the area, which is something that I am really proud of being part of.

Craig Anderson - Reporting Radiographer/Clinical Tutor

What was it that made you want to go into the profession you’re in now?

I was attracted to both the technical and caring side of the job. The things I do are very varied, which I like. I teach radiography, but I’m also an advanced practitioner, interpreting and reporting images. We have a small but growing team of radiographers developing their roles into advanced practice here . Overall I would say we are pretty advanced and have a mix of different skills in our team.

What are the benefits of working at this Trust?

I can confidently say there are lots of opportunities to advance here. I’m about to start my post grad for a ‘skills mix’ course. We’re fairly progressive and we’re linked to the University so we’re definitely hiring some amazing talent to the Trust.

There is also a great team spirit here which I don’t believe you will get a bigger hospital. Everyone is very friendly, and even though I work higher up in the department now, I still have a good relationship with those who I manage.  There are no barriers by a job title in the Trust and that is really nice!
