 Liz Curr
Associate Trainer/LGBT Advisor

Liz has worked in health care for 30 years, been a Qualified Nurse 26 years and been a mentor/teacher/trainer for 22 years. Having worked across the public, private, charity sectors and worked with clients/carers and agencies in several clinical disciplines- ITU- Renal- Respiratory-Hospice- Site Clinical Manger.

Liz brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience in dealing with everything from simple medical issues, infection control to being a fire officer, part of a trauma/medical emergency team. With a passion and focus on care that is patient centred- advocating personal choice – encouraging ownership accountability and responsibility for all the staff she works with and the standards of care and communication with staff and patients alike.

Liz has a strong work ethos- starting her 1st job on the same day she left school- as a waitress- progressed through retail and industry. Being hospitalised as a patient for knee surgery was a turning point in her life- and on discharge decided that Nursing was the career for her and has not looked back since. Following qualification as a Registered General Nurse with a Diploma in Health Care- following the birth of her 2 boys – went on to complete a part time degree and gained a Bsc(hons) in Professional Nursing Practice. Education/training has remained a driving passion, under pinning her career and has since completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Managing Health and Social Care- recently finished another level 6 module focussing on Substance Abuse and Health and is currently looking to do a Master Programme Part time.

Liz has always tried to make learning fun and interactive but strives hard to embed the knowledge and skills she teaches onto individual examples-whether it be with nursing students- newly qualified doctors or even staff from different clinical backgrounds. There is a genuine focus on looking at the person, the individual – the story behind where the patient currently is rather than a fixation on a single diagnosis or reliance on striving for “normal results”.

Working within and for the LGBT+Q community Liz is no stranger to adversity, discrimination and harassment – and works tirelessly with Equality Diversity and Inclusion to promote all minority care issues- even when this may mean having to challenge old out-dated practice/modes of thinking - being creative in finding new ways of working/teaching and being a visible role model.

Away from work Liz is very friends and family orientated – enjoys cycling and walking as part of her fitness programme and can often be found playing card/board games, quiz’s or doing the Sudoku/crossword puzzles in the papers.

Liz supports clients of Freedom Training and Consultancy Ltd who are experiencing their own Transitional Journey, one client said….
