Professional profile

I carried out my nurse training with Cambridge health authority, gaining my experience at both Addenbrookes and Hinchingbrook hospitals. I started my qualified career working within the surgical environment in the NHS. I first became involved in the field of “plastics” when I went to work at the Lister Hospital, Stevenage in 1989. I have worked in the independent healthcare sector since 1991.

I undertook my Burns and plastic surgery nursing course in 1997 and as a result took up the position of Clinical Nurse Specialist and have remained in this position ever since. I started working at Spire Harpenden Hospital in 2001.

I work closely with the Consultant plastic surgeons at Spire Harpenden, providing high quality care for our patients.

I offer advisory appointments for patients considering surgery and help them make informed choices about their care. I carry out pre-admission appointments on our patients to ensure that they are fully aware of their post-operative expectations, restrictions, risks and complications so that they can plan fully, both physically and mentally, for their surgery. I visit patients during their hospital stay and prior to their discharge to offer ongoing support and advice. I also follow up patients on the telephone after discharge to check how they are progressing. I offer aftercare appointments for wound care and advice and am present during consultant’s clinics to offer care and advice

I like working at Spire Harpenden because it is a very friendly hospital and the staff all care and support each other. We all hold strong values regarding the level of care we deliver to our patients and I am proud to be a part of that team.
