Martin Russell is a Community Nurse Team Leader working with the hospice team for over 15 years
“I always wanted to be a nurse, but didn’t start my training until I was 44 and I haven’t looked back since,” Martin explains.
“My whole career, from working in insurance and in shipping, has led me to the job I absolutely love. As part of my nurse’s training I gained experience working in local care homes and Ipswich Hospital, but the hospice grabbed from the moment I set foot inside the building.
“Initially, I had been a little scared of what a hospice would be but when I visited St Elizabeth Hospice I was amazed at the care the staff gave and how warm it was. From that moment on, I was determined I would work for St Elizabeth Hospice as it is where I felt I belonged and more than a decade on, I am still here!”
