I arrive for duty at 9am, I sign in, and then report to the ward. I ask the Healthcare Assistant if there is anything that she needs me to do. I then help with any cleaning and stock that needs to be done. Sometimes I am asked to check Woman's Urine samples, saving midwives a bit of time. I make tea and toast for any patients that need it, and tea's for the staff, and help them in any way possible. I also do some photocopying and get brown notes' for women who are staying in hospital.
Everyday can be different and I wouldn't have lasted this long had I not enjoyed it. The staff really make me feel part of the team."
