Rachel Treanor
Clinical Case Manager

Rachel’s CV

Rachel graduated as a Registered General Nurse in 2000 at Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry, with a Diploma in Higher Education. She began her nursing career as a staff nurse working in acute respiratory medicine in Yorkshire. This was looking after patients with a variety of respiratory conditions. This included occupational disorders associated from working in the mining industry and asbestos exposure; i.e. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Mesothelioma, Pneumoconiosis (Coal worker’s lung) and Progressive Massive Fibrosis.

In 2001 she then specialised in cardiac care and worked as a sister on a Coronary Care Unit (CCU) in Leicester. She also obtained a degree and a specialist qualification in cardiac nursing. She provided care to acutely unwell cardiac patients following Myocardial Infarction’s (heart attacks) and arrhythmia’s (abnormal heart rhythms). Patients were also admitted with end-stage cardiac failure and Rachel developed an interest in palliative care.

This was recognised by the RCN and won her an award with an entry to the Diabetes Conference.

In 2008 Rachel then worked as a Community Matron within Leicestershire. This involved being a case manager for patients with a variety of physical and psychological conditions. These included respiratory, neurological, orthopaedic and vascular illnesses. There were also patients with a palliative care diagnosis.

In 2014 Rachel began working as an independent consultant and currently is a bank Specialist Advisor for the Care Quality Commission (CQC). As part of her role she assisted the Inspectors on their inspections of care homes and hospitals.

Her key responsibilities included providing specialist nursing advice based on professional knowledge and experience. This was focused on patients that may have pressure sores or required nutritional and bladder and bowel support. She also advised on palliative care and best practice for the patient. As part of this role Rachel had to be sensitive when addressing staff within the organisation that was being inspected. Many staff were anxious; and some were hostile. Rachel was part of the feedback process and this involved presenting the evidence to the mangers of the establishment. She then wrote up a report within 2 days and this was submitted to the Inspector.

Rachel also remained clinical and up to date by working as a community nurse within Intermediate Care in Leicestershire. This was an MDT approach of caring for patients that required assessment, treatment and monitoring in their homes but were not acutely unwell enough for hospital treatment.

In 2017 Rachel joined a legal team offering support and assistance towards people who have been subjected to medical negligence, i.e pressure ulcers. Rachel looked at the situation surrounding a person that had acquired a pressure ulcer and determines if this is avoidable or unavoidable care.

Rachel joined Tania Brown Ltd as a case manager and can provide assistance with complex care cases. She has extensive nursing experience and has an interest in palliative care and physically unwell adults. She always strives to provide the very best care her patients. She has experience working with people who are deemed to not have capacity and require best interests’ decisions
