My current post, finds me in Nurse Education, an area I have always been passionate about. Prior to this I worked for the NHS for 16 years, covering both Acute and Primary care services.
In the acute Sector I was fortunate enough to gain experience in both trauma & elective Orthopedics, HDU & Colorectal surgery being part of the first teams to develop the High observation Bays.
In Primary care sector I joined the Communities & Therapies Division within the local trust, where I gained my Specialist Practitioner Qualification in District Nursing, alongside Non Medical prescribing and took up the post of District Nurse.
I continued my passion for teaching, gaining my PG cert in Practice Teaching, whilst embracing the opportunity to support post graduate students, in the Community. I have also been fortunate enough to be involved with NHS England Health Coaching Projects, alongside the Queens nursing institute ,which in turn has helped support my application for Queens Nurse. An honor I am please to report I was awarded the tittle for in 2020.
Prior to the NHS I served in the Royal Navy for an additional 14 years gaining invaluable skills, that have been an asset throughout my time in the NHS and ones I will continue to access
