Meet the Team – Karen Thomas, Registered Nurse

Karen joined RHG in October 2018 after with many years of experience of nursing in gynaecology and sexual health settings and most recently working as a practice nurse. Outside of work she enjoys listening to music, going to concerts, spending time with her family and walking with her dog.

Karen, what are your main day to day responsibilities at RHG?

On a day to day basis, my duties can involve spending time both in theatre and on the ward, chaperoning our ultrasound clinics, medication teaches for our fertility patients, completing consent forms and dealing with enquiries from our patients.

What aspect of your role is the most rewarding?

I enjoy the opportunities for patient contact most of all. Seeing our fertility patients from the start of their journey through to the end result is also extremely rewarding.

What do you think makes RHG different from other clinics?

We have a real emphasis on the multidisciplinary team here, with everyone working together for the same aim. As well as all the different members of our own team, we also work alongside all our different Patient Support Partners to help support our patients further still.
