Aaliyah joined the practice in April 2019. She brought with her 7 years’ experience as a healthcare assistant. She worked in both a teaching hospital setting at St Thomas’ London, as well as in general practice at Blossoms Healthcare in the City.
She started her healthcare career as a volunteer in St Mary’s Hospital on the Isle of Wight. She went on to obtain The Care Certificate for healthcare assistants in 2016.
Aaliyah is qualified to perform many things and she is good! These include phlebotomy, ear irrigation, administration of immunisations in influenza, pneumonia and shingles. She can give vitamin B12 injections, dress wounds, perform drug & alcohol testing, resting electrocardiograms, audiograms, vision and lung function testing.
Being in healthcare and helping people is what Aaliyah enjoys the most and is hoping to do so for years to come.
