Applications Trainer: I’ve enjoyed working in the NHS for 5 years now. I’ve worked as both a Clinical and now Applications trainer. When not at work, I enjoy playing the guitar and drums. I also enjoy running, entering the odd 5 & 10k race. Recently I began studying Mandarin Chinese at the Durham University School of Foreign Languages.
Clinical Systems Specialist: I have worked in the NHS since leaving school, first as a dental nurse then moving to general practice where I stayed for twenty years. Then three years ago I joined the training team, since joining them I have learned so much more about the clinical systems and other applications, things that as an end user in GP you are not aware of. When not at work I enjoy socialising, cinema and theatre and best of all being a grandmother and teaching my granddaughter all the things only a grandmother can teach.
Applications Trainer: I graduated from Sunderland University and held a number of different IT roles, technical and training, in both the Public & Private sector. I’ve worked in the NHS for 7 years now as both a clinical systems and applications trainer. Outside of work I like to try to keep fit, go on the occasional run and going on camping holidays with the family.
Clinical Systems Specialist: I have worked in the NHS for over five years in primary care where I had the opportunity to work in numerous roles which allowed me to expand my skill sets. Working as an IT trainer has gave me the opportunity to put my knowledge into practice and broaden my horizons. In my spare time I enjoy travelling to different countries where I enjoy experiencing various cultures and partaking in extreme sports such as swimming with sharks and deep sea diving.
Applications Trainer: I have been part of the NHS family since 2008 working for PCT and FT in IT and Training positions before returning to NECS in 2014 as an applications trainer. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and I also play gigs in local pubs and clubs as a solo guitar/vocalist and attending local acoustic events arranged by Mark Scott, one of our other apps trainers.
Applications Trainer: I started working for NECS in 2014 and love my role which offers me the variety of delivering face to face training and working with subject matter experts to turn their experience into bespoke interactive e-learning. When I’m not working for NECS, I can be found performing in KitchyRetro Americana Duo or hosting events for Cestria Community Events CIC.
Training Manager: I graduated in Chemistry from Birmingham University and somehow ended up in IT Training, initially self-employed and then with the NHS since 2000. Outside of work I enjoy running, cricket, and tennis.
Clinical Systems Specialist: I joined the NHS in 2011, after completing a Masters in Norse and Viking Studies (Yes...Really!) Since then, I've worked both in General Practice and as a Clinical Systems trainer, covering everything from deployment to support and troubleshooting. When I'm not picking apart reporting queries or building protocols, I'm likely to be found either abusing my eardrums to live music, or pushing my stress levels through the roof watching Derby County.
Training Lead: Back in the training team after a couple of years working in practice, I have experience in a few different roles within the NHS. Most of my time is spent travelling around GP practices training staff and developing clinical tools to make the lives of everyone a little bit easier. I’m a literature and film fanatic, DIY have-a-goer and a lapsed tennis superstar.
