"Hello, I am Ruth Clout. I work at the Christie Hospital in Manchester as the senior clinical practice facilitator in haematology/transplant/CAR T. I am delighted to be part of the CTIWP and am really looking forward to being involved in the working party and EBMT. I qualified in 1999 from Kings College London with a diploma in adult nursing, and obtained my BSc in Nursing at the University of Manchester in 2015. I have been working in Haematology and oncology for the past 21 years. I started in haematology at Guys Hospital London in 2000 and really found my love for haematology and transplant. I had a 3-year period in the midlands in Oncology, after missing haematology I relocated to Manchester to the Christie where I have been working for the past 15 years. I have worked as a sister on the inpatient haematology and transplant unit also working as a transplant coordinator. I spent 2 years on the haematology day unit. In 2011 I commenced my current role. I have the pleasure of working with staff in both inpatient and outpatient facilities, clinically helping to support, guide and mentor in their professional development in many aspects of haematology, transplant and CAR-T. This year I obtained my post graduate certificate in medical and health education at the University of Manchester. I am also one of the unit leads for the Principles of Haematology at the University of Manchester. I am very enthusiastic about nurse education and am excited about this role in within the working party."
