We love hearing from our ex-students, especially during these difficult times.
Long Road Alumni Tom has been in touch to tell us all about his work on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tom spent two years at Long Road from 2003 – 2005 studying A Level Psychology, A Level PE and A Level Business Studies. He then progressed to the University of Manchester where he successfully graduated with a degree in Management and Leisure. Tom spent a further year the Manchester Metropolitan where he had further success in achieving a Masters in Business and Finance.
After University Tom enrolled as a Graduate Trainee for the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, studying for, and becoming, a qualified Chartered Accountant in 2012. Tom has since worked in a number of different NHS locations including North Middlesex Hospital. Moorfields Eye Hospital, Whittington Health before joining St Georges University Hospital in 2015.
St Georges is the largest healthcare provider in southwest London, with over 9,000 dedicated staff and is also the home of Channel 4’s 24 Hours in A&E. Over the last few weeks, Tom has been involved in the supply of PPE and medical equipment such as ventilators. Below you can see a picture of Tom helping to deliver masks around the hospital!
Huge thanks to all the other former and current Long Road students who are working hard during the pandemic – we couldn’t be prouder of you all!
