My name is Kath Pope. My husband, two children and I moved to Spain in 2011.
I have worked as a nurse for over 20 years with adults initially working as the most senior level nurse on duty within nursing and care homes and then with children again to a senior level within a hospital environment and I am fully qualified in both adult and childrens nursing.
I have additionally successfully obtained an nurse practitioner qualification in the UK, which allowed me to assess a patient, diagnose and treat a patient within the hospital environment. Furthermore I obtained a nurse prescribing qualification which allowed me to prescribe medication within the legal guidelines in the UK and the NHS trust in which I was employed.
I have had a range of experiences with different patients which includes care of tracheotomies, colostomies, tube feeding via nasal or enteral, wound care, nutritional management and a variety of of medical conditions diabetes, eczema, epilepsy, asthma, post surgery recovery, some food intolerances or allergies, some experience with mental health disorders to name a few
I have worked for Angels Nursing Group since May 2011 and initially worked providing nursing home care for clients on a daily basis for 3 years than was given the opportunity to take on a different role within the Angels group....a much more challenging role and I love it!!! I have the opportunity to still provide the nursing and homecare for the clients and to continue doing a job I love and provide a high standard of care to all clients. Yet I can take on a more senior role and oversee the staff rota and can use the skills obtained re advise and assessment and I suppose I have the best of both worlds ......
