Speaker: Jill Hill, BSc, DipHE, RN
Jill Hill is entering her 6th year as Lead Nurse at The Cheltenham Ladies College, following a long career in Emergency care. As a Senior Sister and Emergency Nurse Practitioner at the John Radcliffe Hospital she was responsible for staff training and work in association with Oxford Brookes University to deliver specialist lectures in minor injuries and autonomous practice. In 2012, her chapter "The Role of the Trauma Nurse" was published in the 4th Edition of ABC of Major Trauma and she continues to be an ALS instructor for Resus Council (UK).
Jill's change of direction into school nursing enabled her to rekindle her love of nursing by making a marked difference to the students in her care by reinventing the medical centre and its provision at CLC. She and her team are an integral part of the Pastoral team, working with students, staff and key stakeholders to ensure that the overall physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of each individual pupil is at the centre of all they do.
Jill is a strong advocate for the nursing profession, suggesting the unique skills and qualities nurses possess make them the perfect advocates for the students in their care.
