Meet A Securi Care Colorectal Nurse Ash Redfern

Name: Ash Redfern 

Based: Leicester Royal Infirmary 

Work Experience: I started my nursing career as a Staff Nurse on a busy Emergency Medical Admissions Unit at the Glenfield Hospital (GGH), Leicester. I gained a solid foundation of knowledge here, before moving into a more senior role within the Outpatient Clinics at both the Leicester General Hospital (LGH) and GGH. I worked clinically in a variety of specialities in this role (including working alongside the Colorectal Specialist Nurses) whilst managing a large nursing team. I was always keen to learn more about the role of the Colorectal Nurse Specialists I worked with, who assisted patients throughout their cancer treatment and beyond. 

Joined SecuriCare: October 2015. I currently manage the colorectal cancer surveillance programme with my nurse colleagues here at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. I also attend weekly multi-disciplinary team meetings for colorectal cancer care in Leicester. I am passionate about providing an informative and dedicated service to my patients, so that they are well informed and supported. 

Outside of work: My passion is music. I actually DJ in my spare time, playing mainly electronic/house music although I enjoy many genres, having grown up in the 80’s and 90’s (probably the best era for music). I am also quite sporty and play football for a local club each week.

    It is so nice to see that some places have Stoma nurses thar care. Its been over 5 years since the last time I saw mines At Ayr hospital, enen then she was not all that interested in my complaint. Ive had my stoma since 2001, and had my fair share of ups and downs with it, just like others I may say, but this is the second stoma nurse who really does not care 3 months after your opereation. You are sometimes afraid to contact them, just tell you, if your that bad, just put on an appointment and wait a month or so. They are supposed to make home visits now and again. in my 16 years of having a stome, never once have I been visited..super service....not Thank you for taking the time to read this...George McKenna...( securicare deliver my orders, great company may I say.)
