There are a number of Royal Surrey staff who are taking a break from their day jobs (and night shifts) to support the Olympic Games. We are very proud of everyone who was selected to be involved...
Kisten Kelly, Sister on Millbridge Ward
Kirsten Kelly, Sister on Millbridge ward, is on the Medical team at Wimbledon for nine days during the Games. Kirsten took part in a test swimming event at Hyde Park last year where volunteers were split into teams covering athletes, spectators and dignitaries. Since then Kirsten has completed Health and Safety training and passed her accreditation to allow her to be part of the London 2012 medical team.
Dr Andrew Carne, Consultant Radiologist and Depuity Medical Director
Dr Andrew Carne, Deputy Medical Director and Consultant Radiologist is providing radiology for competitors during the Games. The first week Dr Carne will be working at Wimbledon in the afternoons and evenings at Eton Dorney for the rowing and canoeing. The other week he will be in Stratford at the Olympic Village.
Marion Creagh, Sister in Recovery, Theatres
Sister in Recovery in Theatres, Marion Creagh’s role at London 2012 is First Responder 2 and she will be providing crowd first aid in the Olympic Stadium on the 27th July (Opening Ceremony) and then the 3rd August to the 9th August 2012. Marion’s journey to this point started in 2006 when she first registered her interest to be a volunteer. Her interview took place in April 2011 but she did not find out she was successful until January 2012. Marion has since attended further role training and venue training as well as taking on her first shift on Monday 23rd July during the rehearsal for the opening ceremony.
Carolyn Hunt, who is a staff nurse on the Eye Clinic, is supporting the archery at Lord’s Cricket Ground during the Games. Carolyn is an archer and archery coach and was approached by Archery GB to be one of sixteen people running a “Have a Go at Archery” event for seven days during the competition at Lord’s. The sessions, starting on the 28th July, are free and open to everyone at Lord’s and they are expecting 10,000 people through the gates a day during that week.
