My Name is Rob Furby and I’m the midlands regional committee Interim Chair Person. I took on the role in 2017 following a few years on the committee in a variety of different roles.
My background is predominantly Adult Critical Care. I qualified from Sheffield University and I came to Nottingham in 2010 where I initially worked as a staff nurse on ICU before a promotion to Clinical Nurse Educator in 2014. Alongside my educator responsibilities, I am the Lead Nurse for medical devices for our service.
Along with my passion for education and development of staff within critical care I am also an aspiring academic. I am currently completing an MSci with a view to take my research to doctoral level study.
I hope that in my new role I will be able to support the committee to deliver both an agenda high-quality of study session and support to you our members in the years to come.
Can you support us? If you can give a few hours a month to help us, then get in contact
My name is Katie and I took on the role of treasurer for the Midlands committee in 2015. After qualifying in 2014 with a Masters in Nursing Science from the University of Nottingham I have held a staff nurse post on Critical Care in Nottingham.
I recently completed both a secondment to an acute medical unit and our in-house rotation programme to the other Adult Critical Care areas in the city. I have interests in uses of technology within Critical Care and palliative care. I had the opportunity to present my dissertation results (as a short talk) at the BACCN conference in 2015 and at the Mid-Trent Critical Care Network conference (as a poster) the same year.
Being recently qualified I don’t feel like my inexperience in the field holds me back at all. I feel I am able to represent a growing demographic – newly qualified nurses, new to Critical Care! I would encourage any nurse new to Critical Care to get on board – so if you feel you are able to help out the committee contact our Chair, Rob (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
