I started working in the trust in November 2007 as a theatre care assistant in main theatre. I moved to the clinical trials unit in November 2014. My position was as a health care assistant for the department. In August 2016 my role changed to assistant practitioner for the department which has given me the scope to become much more involvement with the actual trials.

My role is very varied and I assist the nurses with trials in Stroke, Cardiology, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, surgical and Parkinson’s.  My interests outside of work are reading, walking and spending time with my family.
