In 2009 I moved to the Queens Medical Centre where I worked in Critical Care, mainly working on the Medical High Dependency Unit for six years. In 2015 I decided to train to become a Midwife; however I missed nursing and joined the practice in April 2017. This is my first Practice Nurse Job; I am enjoying learning all aspects of the job.

Emily Gascoigne (f)

Personal Profile:-

I joined the practice in 2015 as an Apprentice Receptionist. Over the past 2 years I have completed my apprenticeship whilst working as a member of the admin and reception team and have since begun my training to become a fully qualified Health Care Assistant. I am currently able to do blood tests, blood pressure checks, INR blood tests, annual reviews and home visits for our housebound patients unable to attend the surgery. I hope to continue to learn new skills and become more qualified during my time here at Brierley Park.
