BTC Research Nurses and Administrators

Whilst most of the BTC is working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, the research nurses along with the research admin team are working hard at the Bristol Royal Infirmary keeping things going, carrying out tasks such as sorting the post, carrying out patient follow up and sending out questionnaires. We would like to thank them for their ongoing hard work.

Karen Sheehan, the paediatric research sister, has found that for her “as the manager it’s been lots of planning and preparation for different scenarios as they arise.  Supporting my team to ensure they are fully aware of the latest information, are happy with new processes with study delivery and generally checking in on how we’re all doing.  I know I have my moments and am lucky that the support works both ways.  Also, the support of our lovely university colleagues with little surprise deliveries has been so appreciated.”

We know that research nurses around the country working on BTC studies are working in challenging conditions at the moment. We hope you are all keeping well and look forward to working with you on our studies again soon.
