Story on Sunday – Hannah Fraser James

Another nurse’s story for Story on Sunday this week. This week we hear from the lovely Hannah Fraser James, a Band 7 nurse for Special Care.

” I qualified as a paediatric nurse back in 2008, from the university of Brighton. I didn’t know where I wanted to work when I qualified but TMBU offered me a job and I’ve never looked back. I fell in love with the place, the babies, the families and just how amazing it is to work in such a special place.

I’ve worked on the unit for over 12 years now and i feel privileged and very lucky to be part of such a great team of nurses and doctors. We care for families at their lowest points right through to the highs of going home.
In my not so new role now, as Senior Sister for our special care nursery, I get to help families prepare for their journey to home which is such a huge part of their NICU journey. I have met some of the most inspiring families who continue to amaze me with the strength and courage they show day in, day out.

We are so lucky to be supported by the wonderful EBA, they have funded many projects for us on the unit and the work they do helps us to give an extra special experience to our babies and their families!”

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us Hannah and for your support of The EBA. We are so happy to hear we can help the nursing staff give an extra special experience to those on the units.

If you’d like to help make this Christmas a little bit extra special for the staff on the units we are still running our Christmas fundraiser.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far – we have raised a brilliant £275! ☃🎄
