How would you feel if I described you as an athlete? Well the reality is that you are! We all have to perform athletic activities day to day at work, whether it be moving a patient, carrying heavy bags or simply taking some paper to the printer.
Starting her NHS career as a dental nurse in 1980, Teresa Stewart has worked all over the county and even in Canada during her time at DCHS. Just before her retirement this week, we caught up with her to learn about her experience working for the Trust and her plans for the future.

Maria Kozlowski, community physiotherapist, qualified with her second degree as a physiotherapist in March 2015 –achieving her personal goal of qualifying before she was 30. She made up her mind to get her training qualification after seeing physiotherapy in action first hand, whilst working in a support role for people with learning difficulties. She was a rising star finalist in the 2016 Advancing Healthcare Awards.
How long have you worked for DCHS?
A team with varied skills including a nurse, a physiotherapist, two occupational therapists and administration support, they work with care homes, clinical commissioning groups and health and social care to provide improved resident wellbeing and care standards in care homes throughout Derbyshire, through training, advice and support.
Apprentices are aged 16 or over and combine working with studying for a work-based qualification such as an NVQ. DCHS has a variety of apprentices in a wide range of roles, from finance to technicians and healthcare assistants. We had a chat with Connor Eaton, apprentice placement support administrator, about working in the training team, his education and the DCHS jobs that attract him.
