Meet Emma Taylor, lead paediatric nurse at Nuffield Health Chester Hospital
Hi, my name is Emma Taylor and I am a committed and compassionate paediatric nurse with over 10 years’ experience, caring for children from 0-16 years.
I initially qualified at Salford University were I obtained a degree in children's nursing. The majority of my work has been in the NHS on a dedicated children's unit, here I gained progressive experience rotating in medical, surgical and high dependency areas. This involved caring for children with common childhood illnesses and chronic conditions requiring emergency and routine treatment.
Over the last few years I moved over to the private sector supporting children and families accessing inpatient and outpatient services. To progress my career further, I recently joined Nuffield Health Chester Hospital, The Grosvenor as lead paediatric nurse for children and young people.
Here at Nuffield Health we realise that bringing your child into hospital can be very worrying, we therefore have paediatric nurses on hand to give the appropriate advice, guidance and support as needed.
The most rewarding part of being a paediatric nurse is working with children and their families to make those experiences they may view as unpleasant to be much more positive. A lot of the time children may be anxious and unable to understand why they need to come into hospital, I thoroughly enjoy finding a way to effectively communicate with them providing age appropriate play and distraction to help them through the process.
