Lorraine Wilson – Director
After graduating from Edge Hill University with a Diploma RGN in adult nursing, Lorraine worked for 10 years as a practice and site nurse and has a wealth of practical experience in all areas of nursing.
Primary duties of recent roles were to attend emergency situations on site and to treat walking casualties within the site medical room.
Aside from the reactive issues, Lorraine has ran various wellbeing clinics where health checks were carried out for cholesterol, diabetes, and blood pressure and follow up advice offered. Lorraine has arranged awareness groups such as Roy Castle smoking prevention, bowel cancer awareness, lung cancer awareness, testicular awareness, mole and skin scanning and a chiropodist site visits.
Lorraine co-ordinated the first pilot scheme on construction sites for healthy eating five- a-day campaign, enabling operatives to have access to fresh fruit. Part of the proactive programme included health toolbox talks and slide presentations. Outside organisations were also recruited to assist in some of these, such as blood donor, smoking cessation groups and RNID deafness awareness.
Before site work, Lorraine worked as a practice nurse for a number of years. This role consisted of supporting the doctors in clinical setting and promoting health education to patients/carers. Lorraine had many responsibilities within the practice including maintenance of accurate and confidential records, child and travel immunisation, wound dressings and cervical cancer screening.
