St John Ambulance

Trainee First Aider

As a First Aid Volunteer, I am trained to a high standard to provide first aid treatment to patients at events covered by St John Ambulance at professional football matches, theatres, music festivals and big sporting events such as the London Marathon. This can be carried out at a local, regional and national level. This fulfills my desire to help people and takes advantage of my readiness to deal with situations that can be distressing. I am gaining experience in acting quickly but strategically, while remaining calm under pressure. Taking responsibility and taking lead in difficult situations with everyone's best interests in mind.

The idea of a virtual reality in a medical framework does something to me that I can't quite explain!! Let's go !!! The prospects are rousing, thank God!

From treating service members to training clinicians, augmented and virtual reality could soon reshape patient therapy, disease research, medical education and more.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Ward Assistant

Working alongside clinical staff to provide an extra dimension to care by providing
social support for patients with a wide range of disabilities. I am allocated to specific wards where I build a rapport with staff and patients, especially those who are hospitalised longer-term and those who are lonely, isolated or anxious. I work as part of a team and sometimes individually. I introduce myself to each patient on the ward and help the housekeeping staff provide each patient with a hot drink of their choice.

I have had plenty of opportunities to spend time with individual patients, sometimes just talking and listening, or engaging in an activity such as playing cards or dominoes. I often shop for small items in the concourse and I have been trained to take patients who use a wheelchair out into the gardens or the shops in the concourse.

My goal is to reduce social isolation, loneliness and boredom for patients and to ensure they have all they need at mealtimes, including individual attention and encouragement.

This position highlights my traits in that I enjoy talking to people, I am comfortable in the busy ward environment and able to understand and adhere to boundaries. This role requires confidence and an ability to engage, so good listening skills and an ability to take conversational cues from others are vital. I sometimes work in areas with very sick patients so I have developed a degree of emotional resilience which is necessary.

From this role I have gained great communication skills, the ability to provide feedback to other clinical staff, the ability to complete basic administration tasks including the completion of
forms, good time management and a knowledge of confidentiality requirements. My time in the hospital has enhanced the NHS trust values and behaviors that are required to work in a clinical environment, especially with regards to my chosen field - Forensic Psychiatry.

Aesthetics Event Staff Ltd

Hostess

Wembley Stadium and Emirates Stadium

As a hostess in corporate hospitality , I perform a first tier job; this means that any client coming into a restaurant, private club or hotel will be greeted by me initially. Possessing the role of first contact, my position is extremely important as a customer will deem the rest of the hospitality setting as good or bad as the first point of contact is portrayed. This position involves, cheerfully greeting clients personally and on the phone. I am required to work within a team or at times use my own initiatives and work by myself. I am responsible for ensuring each client's need at the event is met, this may include data capture for clients, product knowledge and sampling. This has given me hands-on experience in assigning work tasks and organising activities of waiting staff to make sure timely and organized service for clients. This position has enhanced my customer service skills greatly.

Mental Health Mentor

I provide 1 to 1 mentoring support for clients with mental health conditions, developing person centered plans in relation to recovery and well being goals. My role also includes working with a client to help them find volunteering, education, sports and other mainstream activities.
A regular commitment is required in order for me to develop and sustain my working relationship.

I monitor the student’s mental health condition and provide an intervention that is supportive, reflective and insightful and at times practical and motivating, that will help to:
Prevent or alleviate relapse and encourage the development of personal responsibility. I help by offering practical ideas and at times study skills to support the client and I understand the impact of the clients mental health condition (and the side effects of their medication) on the their ability to socially interact. I offer feedback to my supervisor about the client and maintain records and keep all client information confidential. I sometimes have the opportunity to liaise with referrers and other professional workers.
