The Department for Health and Social Care has announced the arrival of a new consultant in breast surgery at Noble’s Hospital.
Miss Adamantia (Ada) Chrysafi begins work at the hospital from 17 September, for an initial period of six months, with the possibility that this may be extended.
She replaces the current consultant, Mr Rana Nadeem, who is set to leave the role at the end of September. This allows a two-week handover period, making sure that there is no interruption to treatments or ongoing care for any patients.
Adamantia Chrysafi was trained in Athens, coming to the UK in 2011. She took Clinical Fellowships at St Mary’s Hospital in London as well as University College Hospital and the Nightingale Centre in Manchester, all renowned centres of excellence.
During her time in the Nightingale Centre, Miss Chrysafi was promoted to Consultant, holding that position for two years before moving to a new Consultant role at North Middlesex Hospital in London.
She has also completed the postgraduate certificate in oncoplastic breast surgery from the University of East Anglia, which is the specialist centre for the south of England
Minister for Health and Social Care, David Ashford MHK, said:
'We are extremely pleased to welcome Miss Chrysafi to Noble’s. Her background and experience all confirm that she will provide a first class service to her patients on the Island. I would like also to thank Mr Nadeem for all the work he has done. The detailed handover to Miss Chrysafi will ensure that continuity and consistency of care will remain unaffected.'
