What our staff say

Emma DunnEmma Dunn, junior sister
“Hi, my name is Emma Dunn.  I moved to London in January 2015 and have loved the opportunities and support that this hospital offers.  I am currently working on a cardiology and cardio-thoracic ward dealing with patients with chronic heart failure and patients who are pre/post-operative.  I work with a brilliant team who are always supportive and helpful. The Barts Heart Centre is an exciting place to work and I have appreciated the support and guidance which all healthcare professionals have shown me.”

Ellis Spencer -RossEllis Spencer-Ross, student nurse
“My nursing degree at City University gave me the opportunity to work as part of teams in a wide variety of settings at Barts Health, and exposed me to a wide range of disciplines. The training I received at Barts Health was well structured and I always felt supported and encouraged by other team members and my mentors. Even when I felt very inexperienced and of little use to the team, they were positive and encouraging."

Katie MilesKatie Miles, lymphoma clinical nurse specialist

"I joined the Trust four years ago as a staff nurse on the Bodley Scott Haematology Day Unit. The team here at Barts have been so supportive and friendly, I fitted straight in and have loved every moment since. I have been very lucky in the opportunities I have been awarded and have learnt invaluable skills. I have loved every minute of my Barts journey and would recommend it as a place to come and work to every nurse, at any stage of their nursing career.”

Emmanuella SodeEmmanuella Sode, ward sister

"I am one of the ward sisters working on Percival Pott Ward, an eight bedded surgical day unit, which provides nurse-led care from pre-assessment through to discharge. I have worked in different cancer wards at St Bartholomew’s Hospital over the past ten years and have built a vast experience and knowledge base that helps me to care for patients on Percival Pott with compassion and empathy.  We think fast and act fast.”
