Susan joined the MSG in 2014, having previously worked in orthopaedics. The opportunity for supported training to further develop her skills enabled her to explore new aspects to nursing.
She thoroughly enjoys building a rapport with regular patients, offering support and reassurance to help put them at ease, as they undergo treatments at Mill House. Being able to witness first-hand the improvements patients make, due to the care given, is one of the things Susan values most in her role. Her patients can be any age and most frequently require help with eye trauma, infections, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
As a life-long learner, learning to use the specialised technical equipment and developing the knowledge required for investigations to support diagnosis by the consultants has been a fulfilling challenge. Susan values working in a small team of dedicated nurses, consultants and PAs who are passionate about delivering excellence in healthcare.
