About me

Hello, my name is Portia Gibson. I am very proud to be a Registered Nurse and feel hugely fortunate to have a rewarding career that brings me tremendous satisfaction and happiness.

The need for safe, compassionate and effective patient care continues to be central to my practice. I am committed to prioritising your physical and mental wellbeing and will deliver a high quality, evidence-based service.

As a result of my clinical and teaching experience and passion for providing the best possible care, I have created “Post-Op Nurse”. This service truly gives patients the time, reassurance and support they need when they are at their most vulnerable.

Since qualifying as a Registered General Nurse in 1996 from Plymouth University, I have worked in numerous London NHS hospitals including St. Mary’s (Paddington), The Royal Brompton, Guy’s Hospital and King’s College Hospital. I also spent a year working in a Cardiothoracic unit at Capital and Coast Hospital, Wellington, New Zealand.

Some of the patient groups I have cared for include:

  • Orthopaedic
  • Cardiothoracic
  • Colorectal
  • High Dependency
  • Cardiology
  • General medicine
  • Accident and Emergency
  • General surgery
  • Respiratory medicine

Twelve years ago my family and I moved to West Sussex and I joined Worthing Hospital’s Emergency Department as their Senior Practice Development Sister, teaching and supporting nurses, healthcare assistants and nursing students with their clinical and academic practice.

I am passionate about education so continued my post graduate studies, gaining a BSc in Acute Clinical Practice and an NMC Registered Practice Teacher qualification at MSc level. I now hold an Associate lecturer post on the undergraduate BSc Nursing Degree Programme at the University of Chichester and thoroughly enjoy supporting the education of our future nurses.
