Community Nurse, Community Nursing Worthing Area

Lindsay joined the NHS in 1988. She has worked in a variety of roles before joining district nursing in 2000. She enjoys making a huge difference to patients, working together in co-operation, in their own homes “in their territory.”

When Lindsay goes into work she said “it’s brilliant – we are a great team who support each other, and we are supported by the management team.”

I have developed skills in continence care over the years and I’m a constant resource – I like the fact that my colleagues come and ask me for advice if they are unsure.

As a team we aim to give best practice care, even though sometimes we are stretched. We proactively provide holistic care to our patients which gives us a great deal of job satisfaction and we build a strong and solid relationship with our patients, their carers and their family. Community is very different to providing care in a hospital – community is much more rewarding.

Lindsay will be celebrating NHS70 over tea and cake with colleagues.
