Catrin Dyer – emergency department consultant

Catrin (Cat) is an emergency department consultant who works across our three hospitals.

Cat, who is accredited in paediatrics, is on her second spell working for us. She says she rejoined in October 2016 – and say that largely because of the great people in the ED team.

She is originally from South Wales and moved to the Birmingham area 15 years ago. She finished all her training 12 months ago and currently lives in Worcester which is about an hour’s commute.

“I really enjoy the work. I like the fact that we see everything… you just don’t know what’s going to come in from day to day.

“Although we are always looking for new consultants we still have 21 of us working here at the moment and when there’s so many there’s always opportunities to do things and learn from others. There’s always research projects going on. We’ve all got our little areas of interest so there’s always opportunities for things such as teaching.”
