Laura Davey

Teaching Assistant

St Magnus and St Martha’s

What were you doing before you came to the St Magnus Community?
I worked in retail for 25 years, the last 15 in management. I delivered training for Boots Opticians and was also a charity coordinator, where a highlight was the launch of a children’s book called Zookeeper Zoe. It contained vision checks throughout and I was lucky enough to attend a gala evening with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (author and illustrator of The Gruffalo), who drew and signed a picture for my granddaughter!

What do you enjoy about your work here?
I’ve worked for the St Magnus Community for two years and I am hugely proud of the achievements and advancements I have made. I have achieved my NAPPI training (to positively support people in distress), my Level 2 Diploma and I am working towards my Level 3. I’ve also completed Train the Trainer courses for security, NAPPI and first aid. I found the psychological modules of NAPPI training very powerful, particularly how the Positive Behaviour Scale can be used to prevent distress.

What makes the St Magnus Community different?
The sense of achievement we get from patient-oriented care. Also, I have a sense of autonomy although I am working within guidelines. Many other things make the St Magnus Community different to other places I’ve worked, including the level of education available to all staff and seeing higher management actively involved on the wards.
