Medvivo values their staff and actively encourages people to make suggestions to improve practice.
Before joining Medvivo, I worked in a GP surgery in Swindon as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner ACP).
Prior to that I had worked in the Ambulatory Care Unit in Great Western Hospital after moving to Wiltshire from Pembrokeshire in 2013.
I often saw posts advertised for Medvivo and originally applied for an ACP post. Unfortunately I had to decline this due to personal reasons.
Medvivo contacted me sometime later to see if I was interested in a new role that was being developed. After speaking to the Nursing Director, I was really impressed with the ethos of the company and how they wanted to invest in their staff by designing a post around staff support and coaching. This is something that I have an inherent interest in, and also something that is often forgotten within Healthcare.
On a typical day I would be attending meetings to discuss developmental/educational needs within the company as a whole, attending various team meetings, I will be delivering training sessions both face to face and via microsoft teams. I also accompany staff on their clinical shifts to give support or coaching when required.
A big part of my role is to look at the training we currently offer and plan improvements. I am currently working on a large, exciting project which will transform the training and development within the Out of Hours and Urgent Care settings.
I also continue to work clinically in an Advanced Clinical Practitioner role.
It was a huge step for me to leave the NHS and come to work for Medvivo, but it is the best decision I have ever made.
Without exception, everyone I have met has been so welcoming. The company actively encourages innovation and service improvement ideas from its staff.
Within Medvivo – watch this space, hopefully the large project I am working on will come to fruition.
Prior to Medvivo, I am incredibly proud of the work I did in Wales to introduce Simulation Training to a local District General Hospital and the way this transformed the educational facilities and improved on staff morale.
Work hard, show initiative and be ready to embrace challenges that may come your way.
I have had incredible support from my Colleagues, my line manager and the Chief Executive. All have willingly listened to my thoughts and ideas for transforming the educational opportunities within Medvivo.
Medvivo values their staff, they listen to their ideas and they actively encourage people to make suggestions to improve practice.
I joined Medvivo purely because they demonstrated to me, their commitment to invest in their staff.
I would say do it, do it now, what are you waiting for? It is the best decision I have ever made.
