We recognise that our staff are vital to our success; take a look at what some of our colleagues have said about working at Renovo
I started work at the hospital as a Rehabilitation Assistant. I also continued to complete both classroom based and e-learning courses, and in recognition of my skills and commitment to the job, I was promoted to Senior Rehabilitation Assistant.
Another year on and I have now been encouraged to train as a Registered Nurse, funded by the hospital. I will return to work as a Registered Nurse for a minimum of 2 years once I have qualified. I chose the Hollanden Park Hospital to progress my career because of the specialism in rehabilitation and the training and mentoring provided.
I find my work very rewarding and love seeing the progress of the patients, and I also enjoy the bond I have formed with my colleagues.
Already a trained nurse, I joined Renovo as a Rehabilitation Assistant in the special care unit of the hospital whilst applying for my UK nursing PIN. I undertook specialist training relevant to neurorehabilitation during this time, then worked as a Registered General Nurse at the hospital.
During my time here I have also shown an aptitude for training. As a result, I have been promoted to Clinical Quality Educator with responsibility for ensuring the quality of care is at a high standard and consistent across the hospital wards.
I enjoy getting to know my patients and staff well and I feel that there is a sense of ‘family’ in my ward.
After joining Renovo as a Physiotherapy Assisstant I spoke to the HR team about the possibility of applying for UK physiotherapy registration with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).
My application was successful and the physio team at the hospital looked after me, passing on their knowledge and helping me to prepare to become and independent professional. A short time later I was able to apply for the registration to work as a Band 5 Physiotherapist.
The hospital also supported me in gaining more specialist neurorehabilitation experience and training. At the beginning of 2020 I got promoted to a Band 6 Senior Physiotherapist position and I am now supporting junior staff.
I am currently working in the physio gym with patients who have neuro and cardiorespiratory conditions. The best thing about my job is being able to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, sometimes with very complex cases. Every day is different, and no two patients are the same. Challenging situations give me the drive to improve my knowledge and experience.
