My first job was working at All Saints Hospital as an Occupational AIDE for 1 year, then started nursing auxilliary work on the wards for 1 year until I started my Psychiatric nurses training.

I studied at Hellingly hospital from 1977-1980. After qualification I staffed for eighteen months then went to Israel, to a kibbutz for 1 year.

I returned to do my RGN training at EDGH for eighteen months, and then staffed for years in medical then surgical wards.

In 1985 I had a family and returned in 1997 to work as a community nurse in the district nursing team.

I joined Manor Park Medical Centre as a Practice Nurse in 2011 and have a particular interest in special diabetes and ears.
