The role of a Lead Nurse at Allied Healthcare

Posted about 3 months ago

Larissa joined Allied Healthcare 9 months ago as a Lead Nurse in Essex. After studying a degree in Child Health Nursing, Larissa completed a nursing preceptorship at Royal Brompton Hospital on the cardiac and respiratory ward.

She explained: “I would advise any newly qualified nurse to complete a preceptorship. My mentor was very supportive, and I was able to put into practice everything I had learnt at university whilst developing my skills as a paediatric nurse.”

Following the completion of her preceptorship, Larissa worked for a children’s hospice where she provided short break and end of life care and then at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust completing clinical trials for children neurological conditions.

“Working at Guy’s and St Thomas on clinical trials was very interesting and it developed my skills. I had to work more closely with the Doctors as well as the patient and their family. I developed experience of working with neurological conditions, which has helped me in my role today,” explained Larissa.

Larissa joined Allied Healthcare in August 2019. In her role as Lead Nurse, Larissa is responsible for overseeing the care of our clients, many of whom are children with life limiting conditions.

No two days are the same for Larissa at Allied Healthcare and her role is very diverse.

She commented: “This is my first role in the private healthcare sector, and I love it. The skills from my previous roles are transferable, so all my experiences have helped me in my current role.

“As a care agency we are able to give our clients a good quality of care, by enriching their lives. Through the care we provide, we make a massive impact on client and their family. Our clients are able to attend school to receive an education. We also provide care and support in their homes, as some of our clients require 24 hours care.”

As part of Larissa’s role at Allied Healthcare, she also trains the Care Workers to provide clinical care.

“It’s extremely rewarding when you train a care worker to deliver clinical care. As a team we all work together to provide the very best care for our clients this give reassure to their families.

“I enjoy feeling valued, respected and recognised by others. A nursing role is forever evolving, and you learn from your peers. I would encourage others to pursue a career in Nursing; a nursing team is like an extended family. The rewards of being a nurse and helping others is very fulfilling- you get to make a difference every day.”
