Sarah Hays

Transition sister

Sarah joined Colchester Hospital in 2016 as a transition sister, and works in a specialist team dedicated to helping IBD patients and other young people move from the children’s to adult services when they reach the age of 16.

Sarah qualified as a registered general nurse in 1989 at The Middlesex Hospital in London, and completed her paediatric training to become a registered sick children’s nurse in Brighton two years’ later. Since then, she has focused on caring for young people, working as a children’s community nurse in London before moving to Cambridge to work largely within the Paediatric Accident and Emergency Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Before moving to Colchester Hospital, Sarah spent 11 years working as a special needs school nurse in Cambridgeshire.
