Paula Devine - Interim Assistant Director of Primary and Community Care

When did you start the HSC?


Why did you choose to work in the HSC?

I originally wanted to be a hairdresser but my mum insisted I give nursing a go, so I started out in the TCH in Omagh as a young help and then went on to start my nurse training the following year in Derry.

Describe what you do?

I am currently the Interim Assistant Director of Primary and Community Care, responsible for managing a number of community nursing teams/services and other areas of responsibility include Independent Care Homes, Covid Vaccination service, Homeless Service, Treatment rooms, Continence Service and Interim management of two GP practices.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I love the people I work with, I am very lucky to be surrounded and supported by great staff that make great teams, that work together so well, and together we make a significant difference to the quality of care that our population in the community receive, that is what gives us all real job satisfaction.
