The Trust’s new Lead Nurse for Cancer and End of Life Care, Jackie Brunton, wants to say ‘hello’ and introduce herself to the public.
Jackie, who is based at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, said: “I am delighted to join the Trust and although I have never worked or trained here, it feels like home already.
“I have met so many lovely people and have been made to feel very welcome.”
Jackie trained as a nurse in Manchester and Essex. On qualifying she worked at Basildon and Thurrock NHS Hospitals Trust within general surgery/urology as a staff nurse, ward sister and specialist nurse prior to relocating back nearer to home.
She joins the Trust from Southport and Ormskirk NHS Hospitals Trust where she worked for the last 12 years in a number of senior nursing posts and most recently as Lead Cancer Nurse.
She added: “I live in Preston with my husband Dave and my daughter – but I am a local girl!
“I grew up in Fleetwood and have family and friends who live across Fylde, Wyre and Blackpool.
“I am looking forward to working with patients, the public and staff.”
