Ayesha’s story

Being a Trustee has created a supportive network with likeminded people

Meet Ayesha who went from member to Co-opted Trustee to Trustee

Ayesha Marshall MSc BSc RGN, Nurse Consultant Tissue Viability, South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust

My journey in the Society of Tissue Viability

I started as a TVN in 2000, caring for patients with complex wounds, education programmes, leading and transforming services and have worked extensively in primary and secondary care. My main clinical focus is the care of people with wounds and preventing pressure ulcers. I am an honorary lecturer on the Tissue viability course which I designed for nursing and AHP post graduates at Sunderland.

How a member of the Society can get involved

I joined the Society of tissue viability as a member in 2018 and then became a Co-opted Trustee. My skills and knowledge have increased as I network with such a passionate group of professionals all sharing their knowledge and experience with each other. When I put myself forward to become a Trustee I was accepted and was then able to vote. Being a Trustee for me has created a supportive network with likeminded people passionate to make a difference in the world of Tissue Viability

My interests lie with supporting people with wounds and also supporting carers and family of people with these conditions. I have a specialist interest in training and education for staff in relation to caring for patients with complex wounds.
