As a highly motivated and holistic focussed Community Drugs Worker within a multi-agency treatment system, I have a proven track record of delivering exemplary levels of care and interaction both to patients and partner treatment agencies. Whilst undertaking a career change from IT I volunteered for nine months at a prescribing service before securing a full time placement initially as a sessional worker, progressing to a contracted drug worker within 6 months and working with a caseload consistently twice as high as CQC recommended levels. As a process driven yet patient led academic I seek to add immediate strategic value to my organisation going forwards whilst continually developing my personal skill set and knowledge of substance use.
