Our Capital Careers

Each Capital healthcare professional has their own story and reasons for loving working in our capital…

At first you have to learn how healthcare works in a new country, the NHS, systems, process, procedures, guidelines and expectations. Time definitely helps to settle in. I learnt not to be so hard on myself at the beginning but rather be positive and give it my best. I can now say I’ve grown loads in a short space of time. And I’m still learning every day! I would say the key is confidence which only comes with time and you have allowed yourself time. If you are thinking of coming to work in the UK, Do it! It requires hard work, determination, drive and often lots and lots of courage. But it’s rewarding when you making a difference and enjoying what you do.

I still clearly recall the first time I arrived here in London in 1998 as an internationally educated nurse from the Philippines. The excitement living in dynamic city as well as the prospect of practising mental health nursing in such diverse population continues to linger in me. The nursing opportunity that was available for me to experience throughout my career allowed me to work with inspirational professional colleagues from different nationalities, focused in continuous evidenced-based practice to ensure that the care provided to our patient group are safe and effective. It is a testament, that in my role as an Associate Chief Nurse Officer at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, I have progressed in my career here in London with the provision of on-going support from my mentors, supervisors and coach as well as the access on the wealth of training and education in prestigious London universities and colleges. London truly has grown in me as my home and have given me friends and ‘family’ who have supported me in my personal and professional journey.

I really appreciate the team I joined for the support and wonderful attitude they showed. This made my first week very smooth. As much as I was new to the NHS and the team, I felt welcomed and supported. Up to this day I get the support that I need and feel more confident to execute my duties.

London is very welcoming; the workplace culture is supportive and with respect. The chance of your voice being heard is much higher, also you will be very motivated working with your colleagues & your confidence level grow in no time! The story of relocating to London and work as a healthcare professional may sound very challenging or untouchable, however once you set your goal and follow the path it will eventually happen.

I left the Philippines in 2000 to start a new life and career in the UK. My first job was at St Georges hospital, London. In 2002 I moved to work for Moorfields. Since I started in the trust, I have been given many opportunities to develop my knowledge and skills in ophthalmic care, which have supported me in fulfilling my biggest achievement of becoming a matron in the trust. Since moving to England, I have bought up my family and have a great network of friends. I really enjoy working in Moorfields and leading a team who provide our patients with excellent and compassionate care.
