  • Kay Confaloni
    I have worked for the NHS for over 30 years, starting my career at Cheltenham General Hospital working as a Health Care Assistant on the cardiac unit. I spent 17 very happy years there and coronary care became my passion. I then moved to Barnwood Medical Practice and have been with them since 2004. I love my holidays with my husband and family. We have two sons and three beautiful grandchildren. I particularly enjoy minor operations clinics which we do every Monday at the Aspen Centre. I’m very fortunate to work with a great team of nurses.
  • Sarah Workman

    I previously spent twenty one years employed as a Dental Nurse. I have worked in both NHS and Private Practice assisting in chair side Dentistry as well as IV Sedation Nurse and a Dental Implant/Oral surgery Nurse. I have also worked at Cheltenham General Hospital in the Maxillofacial Department assisting in Head & Cancer Clinics/theatre and Paediatric Orthodontics. I decided in 2010 I wanted a change of career so I trained as a Phlebotomist at Cardiff University and thereafter qualified at Cheltenham General Hospital taking blood on the hospital wards, out patient department, cancer clinics & local GP surgeries.

    I took a break from Phlebotomy in 2012 to become a Mum & raise my son full time thereafter. I joined Aspen Medical Practice in May 2020 to return to Phlebotomy, I feel honoured to be working with such a lovely team.
