My name is Francesca Muratore. I work as an Orthotics Technician, senior assistant in Gartnavel General [Hospital] in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde.
So, I am a technician. I have been trained to assess the patient, fit and deliver compression hosiery.
The skills I need are manual skills and I need to know how to use hand tools. I need problem solving skills and computer skills, obviously.
I make insoles for the patient and the insoles stop the pain to the patient. With an insole, I can improve the life of the patient.
I like and enjoy work with the computer and also I like making something to help a patient and to make better their life.
I feel really proud to have something I made in my hands. I feel very proud of that.
