Andrea Finch - Practice Educator
Andrea worked for more than six years on the Inpatient Unit as a Staff Nurse and Sister at Thames Hospice, before moving into training and education as the Practice Educator. Andrea has always found training staff both formally and informally very rewarding, so the opportunity to work as Practice Educator has been the perfect move for her.
Prior to Thames Hospice Andrea worked at Harefield Hospital for 17 years as a Senior Sister.
Andrea said: "For personal reasons I wasn’t able to work for three years and this provided an opportunity to rethink what I wanted to do. The opportunity to work at the Hospice came up, and I haven’t looked back. I have been at the Hospice for over ten years now and absolutely love working here. I am passionate about the work we do, and how we can improve the patient and family experience through teaching, training and education."
