I completed my nurse training at Southampton General Hospital and qualified as a general nurse in 1991. I worked at the hospital in Southampton, first on an Orthopaedic ward, before moving to the Care of the Elderly Unit, where I worked for the next 12 years. I came home to Somerset in 2004, and I have been working at Yeovil Hospital since then, spending the next 11 years working on Ward 8A.

After many enjoyable and challenging years of working on the wards, I decided it was time for a change and I have now been working in research for the past 2 years, on a range of different trials, but largely in the field of Parkinson’s disease and Orthopaedics.
