I'm the coordinator of the Hertfordshire Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening Programme and we were recently awarded a Purple Star for our work with people with learning disabilities.
Lesley became the Hertfordshire AAA Screening Programme Coordinator in September 2013. She oversees the running of the local AAA screening team which consist of 5 screening technicians, an administrator, a vascular nurse specialist and a clinical skills trainer. The local programme runs 4 clinics in Hertfordshire scanning approximately 56 men per day. Lesley is based in St Albans Hospital and works alongside the general surgery and vascular team. This helps when making referrals into vascular services. Lesley organises the programme from arranging staffing and rotas to clinics, finance and data.
