I qualified as an RGN in 1986, having studied at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. I have worked in a variety of nursing settings, including A&E, geriatric care, surgery in the private sector and was a school nurse for several years before getting into general practice in 2008.
I have relocated several times, moving to Stamford in 2012 and joined Empingham Medical Centre in December 2022.
My job is varied. I run clinics that include childhood immunisations, travel health, warfarin, contraception, dressings, ear syringing, cytology, ECGs, phlebotomy and diabetes.
I gained a Certificate in Advanced Skills in Contraception and Sexual Health at John Moore’s University in Liverpool. I am interested in Holistic Therapies, having a Diploma in Reflexology and Certificates in Swedish Body Massage, Mesotherapy, Indian Head Massage, Hopi Ear Candling and Hot Stone Massage.
