Denis Singson - RMN and RGN

Dennis Singson is a Community Mental Health Nurse and Nurse Prescriber working with the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment (CRHT) team in Hastings.

I am nominating Denis for the significant contribution he has made to the NHS and for being such a great role model for all NHS nurses.  Denis is dedicated to advancing his skills, learning and improving the care offered to patients, families and the communities we serve in East Sussex.

Dennis is originally from the Philippines, where his nursing career began. Talking about when and why he joined the NHS, and about his NHS career, Dennis said: “I was working as a general nurse in the Philippines and we had lead nurses from the NHS come over to the Philippines to carry out final interviews, encouraging us to try out and work in England and work with the NHS. 

Before Denis came over to England he had been working as a nurse for 10 years, mostly involved in the academic side, teaching student nurses but also focussing mostly on general nursing. Denis came over and met a lot of really interesting and supportive NHS clinicians that helped him decide to stay in England.

Denis said “it was a big transition from living in a hot tropical country and coming here in October in the grey gloomy weather. But the NHS staff I was working with made the transition smooth, were really supportive and made things a lot easier for us.I started out as a general nurse working in the stroke unit at Conquest Hospital in 1999. I decided to specialise in mental health and joined the Trust the year after."

Denis is now a nurse prescriber and specialises in crisis work for the CRHT.

“The NHS offers you a lot of opportunities. We are surrounded by people who are very supportive of each other, who work above and beyond what is expected of them and it’s a really good environment to work in.

“NHS staff are what makes the NHS really great. The people I work with make the, sometimes really stressful environment, bearable because we support each other. We help each other out and try to achieve our main objective, which is to look after patients, support carers and families and promote patient recovery.

Denis describes the highlight of his career has been improving my skills as a nurse, as a clinician, and working with colleagues from BME backgrounds. Denis has been awarded two awards, for my work in establishing the BME staff network for the Trust and supporting colleagues from different BME backgrounds. Denis is always focused on the job of supporting people and this includes his colleagues, because he will say "we can’t give what we don’t have. We support each other so we can support the people that we look after better."  It is this quality that I am nominating Denis in the category as well as his focus on striving for clinical excellence in all he does and how he supports others in nursing.

Sir Dence—as he is fondly called by us, his students, wasn’t only a clinical instructor (CI) but also a friend to many of us even up to this day. He was our CI during our mental health placement, and I think many of his students will agree with me when I say that it’s one of the highlights of our college days.

Dennis has proven to have given his best in all the fields of Nursing he has chosen: clinical, academe, community mental health and even in his current specialization as a prescriber. He has even advocated the rights of nurses / other health workers he works with as he involved himself in nursing organizations back here in the Philippines and even now in UK. Even as a young Nurse and until now that he has already gained years of experience in the Nursing profession in UK which he chose to be his second home, his passion and commitment as a Nurse hasn't waned

Reply

Thelma Barrera May 6, 2018

to further prove his commitment to the nursing profession, particularly to mental health and psychiatric nursing, in several instances when he comes come for a vacation in the Philippines, he has unselfishly shared his newly acquired expertise and new trends in the UK in caring for psychiatric clients and such kind gesture has made many nursing personnel in the Philippines' premier mental institution to learn from him and acquire new techniques and nursing skills.
not only a nurse but a teacher he will always be!
he indeed deserve this nomination!
