James Driscoll

JamesClinical Practitioner

I qualified in 2007 with Hons in Adult Nursing from the University of Glamorgan whilst also working with the Critical Care Directorate at the University Hospital of Wales.  Once qualified I took up the position of Staff Nurse and looked after Level 2 and 3 Intensive Care patient requiring varying forms of life supporting treatments.  I was also involved in the Critical Care Out Reach team as it was becoming a developed service.  In 2010 I embarked on further training to become a Healthy and Safety Executive Offshore/Remote Site Practitioner.  This new role involved me flying out to oil rigs, drill ships and to remote locations to provide medical care and treatments to the workforce.  Since being back on dry land I have had the pleasure of joining the ATP family and hope that I can continue to deliver the excellent care they strive to achieve.

My hobbies mainly centre around being a ‘Dad Taxi’ for my children’s various activities but you can’t beat a good book, a cup of coffee and a weekend away in the campervan… unless Wales are playing of course!
