Nicky Mercer - Lead Nurse, Theatres 

Nicky has been with the Trust since 2005 and is the Lead Nurse for Theatres. Nicky loves working for a District General Hospital which provides an excellent service for the local community. Nursing was always something that she'd aspired to be from being a child as caring for people is a passion of hers. She advises she was encouraged from day one in the trust to complete her nurse training and has been supported in completing a number of additional qualifications to develop her skills further.

Nicky advises she has always felt like a valuable member of staff and feels very lucky to work with people who started out as her colleagues but are now life-long friends too. Her greatest achievement was when she gained her Lead Nurse position that she is in today. She worked her way from a Healthcare Assistant to Lead Nurse and was well encouraged and supported by the trust to progress.
