This month Laura is celebrating her
10 year anniversary with CUI.
10 years, wow! It has been an incredible 10 years working at CUI Wear. I feel very lucky and privileged to love what I do.
My role has changed and evolved over the years as the business has expanded. I have also seen the CUI team expand due to increasing demand for our support garments and the free fitting service that we provide for our customers. In the early years I would frequently travel from Leicester to areas as far as South Wales and the South Coast to carry out fittings for stoma patients and also to meet with stoma care nurses in places such as Brighton and Bournemouth. We now have designated National Support Specialists living ‘on patch’ covering all areas of the UK and I now look after a smaller area of the East Midlands and I also enjoy supporting the CUI team members in the South.
We really have a great team ethos at CUI and we are all dedicated to help provide the appropriate ostomy/hernia support wear to people living with a stoma/hernia, so they can feel comfortable and confident to carry on their usual daily activities and pursuits.
Over the years we have had lots of exciting developments in the company, such as the development of the Cardiac post-operative BHIS™ bra in collaboration with the Royal Brompton Hospital in London and also our ever-evolving bespoke hernia and stoma support range.
I really enjoy working alongside the nursing teams and community stoma care nurses to help provide a fitting service and support wear to their patients. The teams that I work with are incredibly caring and dedicated to their patients and this is often voiced when I go visit them at home. During a fitting it is great to see the difference a support belt can make, visible relief for the ‘dragging’ sensation of someone with a hernia or prophylactic support to increase confidence in getting back to everyday activities such as gardening, golf, Pilates, dancing, skiing, swimming etc.
I appreciate being able to play a part in providing and increasing awareness of CUI support garments which are available on prescription and also offering the free bespoke home fitting service that we provide.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like any advice or to book a fitting consultation for CUI Ostomy / Hernia Support Wear!
