Asha Hylton

Please briefly describe your clinical/medical experience to date?

I am currently a paediatric critical care sister.

What motivated you to enter paediatric medical care in the first place?

I’ve always wanted to work with children and did a work experience in a hospital which lead to this current role.

How will the funding from The Evie Dove Foundation help you to advance your career and your impact/services to children?

It will help me up my knowledge and skills to look after very sick children and provide invaluable support to children and families.

How did you find out about The Evie Dove Foundation?

My manager recommended me the Evie Dove foundation.

Tell us about yourself!

I currently live in London, I love meeting up with my friends and being social. I love to travel when I can- I love being in the sunshine and I also do a bit of advocacy work on social media raising deaf awareness and working as a deaf nurse!

Anything else you would like to tell us about your experience, future aspirations and motivations?

I hope to train to become an Advance nurse Practitioner in children’s critical care! I have completed advanced assessment module already and hope to be given opportunities to do more courses
