Hospital Manager

Josey has worked within the veterinary industry since 1985 when she started as a student nurse at a primary care practice. After 22 years and with an Advanced Veterinary Nurse Diploma in both surgery and medicine, she left the practice to extend her knowledge in a referral centre. Josey was given the position of Head Nurse of Training with the responsibility of the induction and training of all the new nursing staff, alongside her clinical work. During the following 9 years at the practice she saw the staff levels grow from 15 to 170. Josey also organised regular and successful CPD courses for veterinary surgeons and nurses from referring practices, both internally and at external locations.

In January 2016 Josey joined NDSR as Nurse Manager to oversee the running of the nursing team. Josey has excellent communication skills, allowing her to develop close working relationships both with colleagues and clients. In 2018 Josey became NDSR’s Hospital Manager.
