This is Dean – an ODP in theatres who has worked here for over 27 years
Hello, my name is Dean and I am an operating department practitioner (ODP). I have worked at Airedale for over 27 years.
How did you get to where you are today? What made you decide to do what you do?
I started at Airedale in 1990 when I left school at 17 and enrolled onto the Vocational Training Scheme which was a two year course where I worked in various wards and departments. When the course finished I started a role in theatre as a nursing auxiliary; a job I enjoyed for over 10 years during which time the role changed to become health care support workers.
