Home Manager Lizzie Merrick brings her experience in complex care nursing to Inspire Neurocare
Registered General Nurse Lizzie Merrick joined the Inspire Neurocare team in summer 2020 and became Home Manager in September 2021.
Since qualifying in 2010, Lizzie has worked across the NHS and independent sectors. Beginning her nursing career in Cheltenham General Hospital, Lizzie worked in the high dependency surgical ward before joining Hereford County Hospital to work in intensive care. In the independent sector, Lizzie has worked as Clinical Lead in a nursing unit and as part of a specialist homecare group providing ventilated care for children in their own homes.
“Inspire Neurocare’s difference is in its exceptional commitment to genuinely personalised care. It’s truly built around the needs of the individuals we support – everyone has different types of nursing and therapy depending on their personal goals and abilities. It’s all adapted to each person which leads to the best possible outcomes.
I’m so pleased to be part of the Inspire Neurocare team in Worcester. I’ve worked in specialist complex care, and intensive care, ventilated care and neurocare and having the opportunity to develop in this fascinating area of specialist healthcare is something I’m so enjoying.
The Inspire team is an extraordinary one - the communication between teams about the people we support is outstanding. As part of my role, I work to develop and support my nursing colleagues to achieve very high standards and good outcomes for patients.”
Inspire Neurocare Worcester has been given a glowing report by the Care Quality Commission, who praised the service for treating residents with dignity and respect.
Two Physiotherapy Students have joined the Inspire Neurocare team for a two-month placement at the specialist neurorehabilitation service.
