Solving problems doctors can't

Adam Farmer, electrician

I started at the Trust back in 2012 as an electrical apprentice, qualifying a few years later when I became a full time electrician for the Trust.

It’s a hugely rewarding career because I know that I help keep the hospital running and that my job impacts the care and treatment a patient receives, whether that is providing emergency repairs on a theatre ventilation plant to get it back up and running or to maintain critical systems that are vital to the hospital. Ensuring those pieces of equipment work takes a different kind of skill from those my clinical colleagues possess but helps save lives all the same and I’m incredibly proud of that.

It’s also a hugely varied role. Each day is different so I have no idea what to expect, which keeps me on my toes.

The Trust has massively supported my career development giving me the skills required to become a qualified electrician and putting me through my electrical and electronic engineering HNC. I’ve also received training in other areas such as medical gas systems, asbestos awareness, emergency lift release and many more.
