A passion for design & technology
I look back with fond memories covering my time working in the NHS, I worked in Medical Physics with a lot of the technical and software engineers.
Lets face it websites were basic in those days, but still creating them was my passion. Since learning many program languages for my degree, building and designing online was something that always gave me a positive buzz.
Dreamweaver was my coding software back then, I now prefer other modern programs.
A large part of my work was taken up helping the department software engineer build and test a new paperless records program built for multiple hospital departments.
The NHS has problems with paper based patent records – many long term patients have huge records that can no be physically in 2 places at a time and yet doctors often need to access these records simultaneously. I was very proud to be working on one of the first fully computer / online records systems. My work to get the system online and operational was highly commended by the dept Director. It is hard to quantify how much technology can help all people.
I include this work here because it taught me a few really important facts as mentioned briefly above but it also helped inspire me on to greater things.
