60 seconds with....Lisa Salter, Chief Nurse
Date: 28 August 2022
How long have you worked at The Walton Centre?
Five years, two months!
What’s your background?
I am a Registered Nurse
Tell us about your role
I work with staff across the hospital and Executive colleagues to ensure care delivered is safe, personalised, compassionate and to the highest standard. I am responsible for nursing, AHPs, safeguarding, health and safety, infection prevention and control, governance, and patient and family experience.
What would you be if you were not Chief Nurse?
I've always wanted to be a nurse so that’s a hard one – it would have to be something that was patient or people centred where I could make a difference.
Favourite part of your job?
Working with staff and patients to support them, enhancing the care we deliver to get outstanding results!
What's the first thing you do when you get home from work?
Get changed, have a cup of coffee with my husband, and playing with Milo, my daughter's cat.
What would be your perfect day outside of work?
Spending time with my family and friends, having drinks and food.
What’s your favourite film?
Tricky as I have two favourites - Pretty Woman and The Breakfast Club.
If you could have a pint or pizza with anyone in history, who would it be?
It would actually be a cup of tea with my Grandad. He had Myasthenia Gravis and was a patient of The ‘old’ Walton Centre for many years. Whilst he knew I was a nurse, he never got to know that I am now the Chief Nurse here and I know he would have been so proud.
