New faces at the PRSB

What made you want to join the PRSB?

I was working in general practice on the administrative side of the COVID-19 vaccine programme, which sparked an interest in healthcare. I found the work to be rewarding but wanted to take on a role that used my writing and editorial skills more – the PRSB communications officer role looked like a great fit!

As the new comms officer, what do you think you will be able to contribute most in the role?

The PRSB has done some great work highlighting patient stories, which I’d love to continue. I’m quite creative and would like to explore using podcasts, film and less-common mediums to tell these stories and highlight our work.

What are you most looking forward to about working with PRSB?

The PRSB is made up of staff from very varied professional backgrounds (clinical and non-clinical) and I’m really looking forward to learning as much as possible in areas of expertise I wouldn’t otherwise have access to.

Tech wizard or tech muggle?

Hm, can I say neither? I’m more of a tech student – I’m not an expert in all of the software out there but I’m a fast learner!

What would your superpower be and why?

Definitely invisibility so that I could sit in on the most important meetings between world leaders and see how the sausage gets made.
