Ms Sharan Ingram was awarded the iWantGreatCare certificate of excellence in 2020 for delivering outstanding care.
- Adult Nurse, Level 1
- Nurse Independent/Supplementary Prescriber
I began my nursing career at Altrincham General Hospital, Market Street as an auxiliary nurse whilst gaining further qualifications to commence my nurse training. I qualified as a registered nurse in 1996 with a diploma in adult nursing at Salford University. To further my professional studies, I successfully completed my BA(hons) in Health Studies and became a member of the Medical Gastroenterology team at Salford Royal for 19 years where I held various positions, mainly that of ward manager on the Gastroenterology ward for 10 years. I then proceeded to change my career pathway from ward management to a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Oesophageal-Gastric cancer for approx 18 months. I then returned to medicine to establish and implement alongside Consultant Gastroenterologists, the liver and pancreatic services at Salford Royal. My role as specialist nurse requires me to be an active member in the delivery of care to patients with a pancreatic, liver, bile duct and duodenal cancer and liver cirrhosis initially at Salford Royal and presently at Manchester Royal Infirmary. I work alongside the hepato-biliary (HPB) multi-disciplinary team to co-ordinate suspected and confirmed cancers investigations and any interventional treatments that patients may require to alleviate their symptoms of jaundice. This requires me to be an autonomous practitioner with a high level of consulting, communication and assessment skills to enable me to deliver a high standard of care. I continue to further my professional studies by completing the Developing Clinical Skills course, Non-medical prescribing and Enhanced communication course to enable me to care for my patients autonomously. I was approached to join the liver and pancreas surgical team at MRI in August 2015 where I continued my Macmillan clinical nurse specialist role, developing the service, networking with other trusts and ensuring the patient experience is of a high standard. I fully enjoy caring for my patients and their families with a hepato-pancreato-biliary cancer. Making a difference at the right time in their patient pathway. I changed my career pathway by joining the Christie quality and standards team as the matron in February 2020. Paramount to the patient experience is the ongoing education and support for nursing staff delivering the care at the Christie. Monitoring and reviewing standards is central to patient care especially with evolving treatments for all tumour groups,
