02nd March 2022 - 12:06 PM
Scarborough Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP), Chrissy Jaques, has achieved a distinction in the first year of her Masters in Advanced Clinical Practice.
One of only three trainees in the cohort to pass the year, Chrissy has worked on the front-line throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as an ACP all while completing her first year of training.
Chrissy said: “I’m delighted to be able to complete my Advanced Clinical Practice Masters degree whilst undertaking my role as an ACP and working with patients to improve their health and wellbeing, especially through what has been a challenging year.”
“I thoroughly enjoy my ACP role; being in a position where I can really put patients at the centre of their care is incredibly important to me, and the wider Haxby Group team too. My Advanced Clinical Practice Masters training will allow me to support our patients, and team, to an even higher level. My dedication to patient care shows in my achieving a distinction, it is something I’m really proud of.”
Following the completion of her Masters degree Chrissy will have the required training and experience to undertake more senior nursing roles within the practice, including advanced diagnosis, treatment and prescribing.
Dr Omnia Hefni, GP Partner said: “Chrissy has passed her first year with flying colours; we want to congratulate her on this brilliant achievement. Chrissy’s hard work and dedication has been second to none over the past year, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic where she did not shy away from her duties as a front-line member of staff, whilst also training for this qualification.”
Chrissy added: “I want to extend my thanks to Dr Simona who has expertly supervised and mentored me through the year. Dr Simona’s support has made a huge difference to my training journey.”
