A newer member of DREEAM, Lizzie joined as the Sepsis Lead Nurse 2022. She’s got stuck in straight away with helping improve sepsis care for the sickest patients in the department; through training, quality improvement and audit. She still works clinically as a deputy sister in ED, and lectures with the University of Derby on their pre-registration courses whenever she can. Education has always been in Lizzies’ plans as it is such an important role in staff resilience, confidence and patient safety.
Outside of work, Lizzie likes to be outdoors; whether it’s with the scout group she works with, friends, or with her dog. She’s recently taken up paddle boarding and wild swimming neither of which she’s completed mastered yet and paddle boarding generally turns into a wild swim! When this isn’t possible she paints, and draws botanicals.
