Your nursing team
The nursing team is managed by Gill Taylor, Head of Nursing, Jane Radnor-Ortiz, Matron and the Senior Sister, Alison Thompson.
The sisters and staff nurses have great expertise in the area of women’s health. They are committed to giving a high standard of nursing care and ensuring your stay is as comfortable as possible. They will be able to provide information, advice and support to you and your family during your stay.
The matron visits the ward on a daily basis and is dressed in a purple uniform. The sisters are dressed in navy blue uniforms. Staff nurses wear either a striped dress or a striped tunic with navy trousers. The ward is a learning environment therefore you may come across student nurses who will be wearing a similar uniform to staff nurses but with white piping. We also have nursing assistants who are dressed in a lilac uniform. All staff wear a badge with their name and designation so that they are easily identifiable.
