Celebrating Admin at LTHT - My Life in Admin - Angela Clark-McCabe

25 April 2023

Celebrating admin AngelaName: Angela Clark-McCabe

Job role: Clerical Officer

CSU: Bronchoscopy Unit, Respiratory Medicine

Time with NHS/LTHT: 2.8 years 

Roles I have held so far in NHS: 

Clerical Officer and 

Healthcare Assistant in Ophthalmology 

My proudest moment in my job is: 

Receiving feedback from consultants that patients have said I have helped them to understand their tests and what is happening to them. 

What I do makes a difference to patients by:

I explain to patients about their procedures over the telephone and what to expect when they arrive on the day. 

You wouldn’t know this about me:

That I have Cerebral Palsy 

Where did my career begin and how did I get to my current job?

I have always been in the care sector to some degree either as a Healthcare assistant or in an administration capacity since my early twenties.  

I worked in the private sector for seventeen years before returning to the NHS in 2020. I applied for this role as I still wanted to be involved in patient care but due to my disability I could not longer work as a Healthcare assistant.

What did I learn on my journey/top tips?

Do not let having a disability stop you doing whatever you believe in.  

What’s next for me?

Continuing in my role and loving my job.
