How to arrive

Language -

José Manuel Blanco González

Head nurse in the Paediatric Emergency Department at the Hospital and in the Multi-Purpose Unit at the Barcelona Esquerra Comprehensive Paediatric Care Centre (CAPI).

Expert in

Paediatrics and Critical Care

You will find me at


Spanish and Catalan.

My vocation for Paediatrics stems from the internship that I completed as a student at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, which left a deep impression on me. In October 1999, I started working as a nurse at the Hospital, where I have remained up to the present. I was a nurse in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Centre. I combined this with working in the Emergency Medical System (SEM), Haemodialysis and Nursing Supervision Until October 2011. That year, I started my career in Management as a head nurse in a hospitalisation unit.
