Healthcare Assistant staff stories

Aya
Healthcare Assistant, Horizon Unit, Horsham Hospital

I decided to work in healthcare because it allows me to nurture and help others whilst earning a living. There are a variety of different roles that I could pursue that offer me extra training and personal development opportunities to help me progress. In this role I have the chance to branch out and expand my knowledge and experience.

I hope to gain my Care Certificate and complete an NVQ or QCF levels 2 and 3 to improve my clinical skills. I hope to use these qualifications to go into nursing in the future.

The best thing about my job is the opportunity to learn every day from professionals such as nurses and doctors.

In my spare time I like to meet up with friends and have coffee. I enjoy going shopping, whether its clothes, shoes or food!

I have a caring nature and was looking for a complete change in career after being a teaching assistant.

I hope to learn something new and gain my Care Certificate with a view to becoming an occupational therapy assistant or something similar.

The best thing about my job is working as part of a team, caring and chatting to patients and their families and learning lots of new skills.

I’m a creative person and I love making novelty cakes, walking my dog and spending time with my family.

I was inspired to work in healthcare because I wanted to have a career with a cause, so that I’m using my days to help people and make a difference.

I hope to gain experience in patient care and become confident in the skills through mentoring and shadowing. In time, I hope to look into studying and working towards becoming a registered nurse.

I am surrounded by a team who genuinely care and are all working towards the same goal of providing the patient with the best possible care.

Outside of work I love doing anything active and I enjoy being outdoors. I like walking the dogs through the woods, camping, white water rafting and rock climbing.

I used to work in pharmacy and realised I wanted to be in a more patient facing role – when I saw the opportunity for a healthcare assistant role at Horsham hospital, I applied straight away!

In this role I am able to gain plenty of experience and I hope to gain the necessary qualifications to go on to become a nurse. The best thing about my job is the satisfaction and gratitude I gain from helping each and every patient with any day-to-day task.

Outside of work I’m passionate about motorbikes and love spending time with my friends!
