After a career as a bilingual secretary working for financial organisations in the City, I joined the NHS in 2003 as a PA working for the surgical directorate and main board until 2007 when I undertook a role in the Education Department where I set up and managed the Learning Management Systems and managing the administration team across 3 sites overseeing the data management for 6000 staff. I completed a Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care Business Administration in 20013 and then undertook a top up in Applied Professional Studies in which I completed a project on Recovery from Subarachnoid Haemorrhage for which I received a first class honours degree from Greenwich University. I retired in 2016 and have since been working in the voluntary sector to raise awareness of the need to improve support services for survivors.
What it is like to have suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage, the lack of support services available and the implications on patient recovery.
