NURSES on two Bangor hospital surgical wards hope to inspire others into the profession by appearing in a new documentary.

The fourth programme of a brand new S4C series 'Nyrsys' features Cath Jones and Sophie Burgess who work at Ysbyty Gwynedd.

It is on at 9.30pm, on Wednesday, February 5.

The series documents the experiences of some of the region's most experienced nurses and others who have newly started in the profession.

Cath, who works on Ogwen, a Trauma and Orthopaedics Ward, has worked as a nurse for over 30 years.

She started out as an Emergency Department nurse in 1985.

“A lot has changed in nursing since I started, but I have thoroughly enjoyed my career over the years," she said.

“It’s a very worthwhile job and there is nothing better than when you leave after a long shift knowing you’ve looked after your patient the best you can and made a difference for them.”

Sophie, who works on Tegid Ward, that cares for colorectal and urology patients, chose to appear in the programme to inspire others into nursing.

She said: “I was really keen to appear on the programme as I wanted to inspire others to consider nursing as a career and the opportunities within it. But more so for the public to have an insight into what we do.

“What I love most about my role is making a difference for our patients. Working on a surgical ward we see our patients coming in at our worse, they then have their operation and most of the time we see them get better and go home.

“There is nothing better than seeing our patients get their quality of life back.”
