  • Jordan, b6 nurse

    "Seeing the phenomenal end of life care the nurses gave to my family member inspired me to start a career in intensive care."

    "During the first pandemic wave, I was redeployed to The Royal London ACCU and found the team incredibly supportive and willing to teach at every experience. On my first day I was able to experience a major incident and subsequent response debrief, with full support from the matrons to have an opportunity to learn from senior staff about planning and prevention, which I found to be an incredibly valuable experience."

    Jordan, intensive care nurse, The Royal London

  • "I had such a great experience in two emergency department placements at Barts Health that I decided I want to make my career in ED."

    "My proudest moment so far came very recently when I had a very sick patient who needed a lot of intervention in resus. We all worked hard to stabilise that patient for safe transfer to theatre. A few weeks later that same patient walked back into ED to thank us. It’s a privilege isn’t it? Every day we get the chance to make a difference to someone on one of the most critical days in their lives."

    Jessica, staff nurse, The Royal London

  • Fatima, band 5 nurse

    "Every day there is something new to learn."

    "The intensive care unit cares for a wide array of trauma, neurosurgery, renal and emergency care patients and everyone in the unit is very willing to support each other for the benefit of our patients’ care."

    Fatima, intensive care nurse, The Royal London


  • "With the teamwork and the camaraderie, we are like a family here."

    "We can have a laugh and always look after each other, even under immense pressure. If you ask me my most memorable moment, I couldn’t pick just one. What I would say is that we have had patients going through their very worst day and we have managed to make the moment a little better for them, and often saved their lives. That’s really the highlight for me."
