New Theatre Manager for Mount Stuart Hospital

Mount Stuart Hospital is delighted to welcome our new Theatre Manager Cornel Pistorius. 

Cornel is a healthcare professional with 20 years’ experience and someone that is no stranger to Mount Stuart Hospital. Cornel previously worked as our Deputy Theatre Manager and left the Hospital back in 2016 to take up a role as Theatre Manager for BMI Winterbourne Hospital, where he spent nearly four years.

Cornel said “I am delighted to be back at this great hospital, with its great staff and I am looking forward to the challenge of my new role. I am so passionate about what I do and I look forward to continuing the development of exceptional standards in clinical care.

“I am keen to further develop the good working relationships with my theatre colleagues at all levels, and this is vitally important, because operating theatre teams are very much like families. I am really grateful to the team at Mount Stuart Hospital, who have supported and welcomed me into the role.”

As Theatre Manager, it is Cornel’s responsibility to ensure that theatres are maintained to the highest levels of hygiene and they are suitably staffed and stocked to cope with the demands on any given day at Mount Stuart Hospital.

When Cornel is not living and breathing ‘Theatres’, he is a real family man, married with two children. The Cornel clan enjoy the outdoors, roaming Woodbury Common with the family dog. He is also a huge fan of Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club and had mixed feelings when his home nation of South Africa beat England in the recent World Cup Final.
