I love the Research & Development side. I’m also proud of my qualifications and where I have got to today from leaving school at 15. I’m good at my job and I can be relied on.
Hospitals have a lot of medical equipment that needs maintenance, servicing, repairs and testing. As well as maintenance, we also work in the Research & Development department and help with design, whether that is a new piece of equipment or a new procedure, then we implement it. We are patient-facing – we get called to things that have broken down on the ward and either fix it in situ or take it out and bring it back.
