A registered general nurse whose clinical experience has spanned 18 years and multiple nursing disciplines. Qualified in 2003, she started her career in the world-renowned St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London working in breast care oncology. From there she moved to gynaecology oncology and cardiology at The London Chest Hospital. In 2004 the decision was made to move to accident and emergency where she worked in another flagship London hospital; St Georges NHS trust.
Her career has been varied and this has offered her an abundance of opportunity as she has worked in numerous NHS trusts across the UK. This has enabled her to be part of several multi-disciplinary teams and observe how different departments operate within different trusts.
She has worked on many medical and surgical wards throughout her career as she has always undertaken agency nursing alongside contracts of employment. This has strengthened her career portfolio as working within many NHS trusts in multiple disciplines has provided a wide-ranging opportunity to experience different clinical environments, understanding how hospital policy can differ between trusts, and gaining more experience in response to issues relating to patient care.
