Patrycja's story


“When I joined St Bartholomew’s Hospital, I didn’t have cardiac scrub experience, but I was supported by the whole team to develop my skills.

“There are lots of training opportunities tailored to your interests. My passion is research and I’m excited to help with a new project exploring theatre nursing.
