Hi, my name is Alex. My first job in healthcare was as a HCA for Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge, where I worked for about a year. It was a brilliant experience as I worked in many different wards and so was able to learn how to care for patients with a range of different needs. I then became a home carer for an agency in Cambridge, and I have continued to work for them on and off for about 4 years whilst studying.
I am a medical student at Imperial College London which is hard work but also very exciting! I'm looking forward to my clinical training this year. As I am studying, it means I am available to work at the weekends and some evenings, and of course in the holidays.
I play hockey and enjoy running and cycling. I'm thinking about signing up for a triathlon this year. I'm also really into baking cakes and bread, which keeps my housemates very happy!
