Student becomes charity burns champion

  • Comment
Aimee Carroll, a student HCA at Fairfield General Hospital in Bury, has been chosen as the first ambassador of Manchester Children’s Burns Foundation – a new charity set up last year.

Ms Carroll, who is in the first of a two-year multi-professional cadet course at the hospital and wants to one-day specialise in paediatric burns nursing, suffered 80% scolds as a young child and needed regular skin grafts through much of her life.

‘I hope that I will be going the full circle – from suffering with scalds to then working in that particular field of nursing,’ she said.

Abbie Edwards, assistant director of education and training at Pennine Acute Trust, which runs the hospital, added: ‘I believe that she will become an excellent nurse and role model for the children and families she cares for.’
