From Bermuda, Hatti, America and now in the UK, Quincy has worked within clinical settings across the world which has given him respected knowledge before joining us at Cromwell Hospital as Modern Matron for Oncology and Chemotherapy Day Unit (CDU).
His interest in Oncology was influenced from his nursing practice in Bermuda, where he followed onto complete his Oncology certificate in America.
On recommendation of the great services Cromwell had provided to a professor of his, “as soon as a vacancy became available, I knew I had to apply and haven’t looked back”.
Since joining Cromwell, Quincy has achieved his teacher training and is now studying a Harvard University diploma in ‘Safety Quality Informatics and Leadership’ alongside his work. “Learning new theories and understanding different styles & methods to aid learning will better my leadership and my team and facilitate my role”.
Through his independent studies, Quincy expressed, “my line manager has been very supportive, granting me time to complete the course and offering 1-2-1 sessions to outline actions and move forward. Their encouragement makes me want to continuously improve myself.”
As a keen traveller Quincy told us “Coming to the UK, I was able to travel and explore more of Europe, as it is so close by. Most recently I have visited France on my annual leave and a memorable destination for me is Florence in Italy.”
When discussing his love for Oncology, Quincy said “the patients are unique and very different to surgical and medical patients. The nature of their situations allows us to form relationships with them, their family and their wider families. It means a lot to know you are helping them all get through what can be a difficult experience.”
Even though Quincy is now Matron, he told us “I will always spend time with my patients, I believe it's important for their experience and journey with us at Cromwell”.
Recently, Quincy has helped lead the Oncology team for their Gold standard and ISO accreditation, “This was a learning experience and I was able to research about the auditing progress and really focused on how we need to improve our hospital and the strategies behind it. We were so pleased of the outcome, and it’s been a great encouragement for the team.
Being proud of his work and team at Cromwell, Quincy shared “The energy at Cromwell feels like a family, walking into the hospital everyone says hello and it’s a lovely environment to be in.”
Outside of work, you’ll find Quincy playing tennis, cycling, or walking his dog Stanley the Maltipoo. He is also a keen Salsa dancer after completing virtual classes throughout the pandemic, he is very pleased to be back into partner dancing.
