Nurse Matron Caroline Hunt
From a very young age I had always wanted to become a nurse but in the Army and in March 1983 I realised my dream by commencing my registered general nurse training (RGN) in the Queen’s Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps. During my time in the QA’s I spent time in Military hospitals in Germany and the UK, and took part in Operation Lionheart which at the time was the largest peace time military exercis
I returned to Nottingham in 1987 and started working as a Staff nurse on a ward at the Convent Hospital which was a private hospital in Nottingham. I eventually moved to Outpatients where I was promoted to senior staff nurse and quickly rose through the ranks to Outpatient manager.
After Nuffield took over the hospital in 1998 I helped set up and run the first Pre-Operative Assessment and health screening clinics.
In 2010 I successfully became Matron of the hospital and as a member of the Senior Management Team, I was responsible for all clinical departments including Ward, Theatres, Decontamination, Radiology, Outpatients, Endoscopy, Physiotherapy, Pharmacy and Ambulatory Care. I was also responsible for the development and implementation of the Hospital’s Clinical Strategy, compliance with Ramsay’s Clinical Governance, Clinical Audit, Risk Management, Patient Satisfaction and Continuous Improvement policies, clinical staffing levels and skill mixes. I was also accountable for ongoing compliance with all statutory requirements of the hospital’s regulatory bodies, such as the CQC and 14 Clinical Commissioning Groups.
