This is Katie, lead aseptic technician

Posted on October 23, 2018 by AireAdmin

Hello, my name is Katie and I’m a lead aseptic technician.

How did you get to where you are today? What made you decide to do what you do?

I worked in community pharmacy for six months and then decided to embark on training to become a pharmacy technician in hospital. To do this I re-located to Great Yarmouth for two years. Since qualifying I have worked in both large and small NHS Trusts. I am now at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust in a lead technician post and believe that the experience I have gained from working at different trusts has developed my knowledge and understanding of the overall operational duties in an Aseptic Unit, which I incorporate into staff training.

What do you enjoy about your job?

Every day is a new day. Challenges and work pressures frequently change, which means we have to be adaptable, prepared and able to re-prioritise.

What do you enjoy about working at Airedale?  

The team spirit that exists in the aseptic department, all parties work together to ensure that work of a high standard is produced. Staff members work together to support one another.

What do you do outside of work?

Cinema, reading, spending time with friends and family.
