Leji Sara Thomas

Please briefly describe your clinical/medical experience to date?

I have been a children’s nurse since 2011. I had an opportunity to work in Paediatric medical/surgical ward in different countries. Currently, I am working as a staff nurse in Manchester General paediatric ward for over 1 year.

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

I have always loved working with children and their families, making a difference in their life can be quite rewarding.

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

The funding from the foundation will enable me to complete the Paediatric high dependency course. This course will improve my knowledge and skills in caring for seriously unwell children .This will allow me to provide high levels of HDU care to the patient and the family on the ward.

How did you find out about The Evie Dove Foundation?

From our education team on the ward.
