I am a nurse, midwife and health visitor by background, committed and passionate about patient care, the quality of service we provide and supporting staff in their demanding roles.
I started with the NHS several (a lot) of years ago in Bradford as a cadet nurse before starting my RGN training. I have loved the work we do since.
My career has been varied having worked in Acute, GP Practice, Community and Mental settings, staying a while in each so getting a real understanding of the work in each area and the challenges faced.
When I am not working I play golf, go to the gym and read novels. Though I do not get much time for any of these!
I am proud to be a nurse and midwife and continually working in the NHS, we sometimes forget how good the NHS actually is and the enormous difference the staff make to millions of lives every day.
Making a difference is my driver.
