I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1986 from the Bath School of Nursing. My initial position was in a community hospital prior to moving to Yeovil District Hospital in 1988. At Yeovil Hospital, I was involved in the care of patients undergoing both elective and emergency surgery. I continued my post-registration education undertaking both Open University Modules and achieving my MSc at Bath Spa University following the Leadership and Management Pathway in 2006. I finished my career at Yeovil Hospital as an Associate Director of Nursing. Key highlights of my career so far were being presented to HRH Prince Edward in 2011 and being a finalist in the Nursing Standard Awards in 2015.
I completed an NVQ2 in Health and Social Care in 2003 and I was the Candidate of the Year in East Sussex. I have been working as an HealthCare Assistant Phlebotomist for 9 years at a General Practice Surgery in Somerset where I have acquired many skills. Over the years I have gained experience and knowledge in a variety of healthcare settings. I joined the Melbury Clinic and VeinCare Centre in July 2017. It has been a great pleasure to join this group of healthcare professionals and I am pleased to be part of an excellent team which provides up to date and modern vein treatments.
Having trained as a beauty therapist in 2009, I went on to run my own business for 4 years. More recently, I have worked with the elderly in residential and nursing homes as a care assistant. During this time, I completed the QCF level 2 diploma in Health and Social Care. In these two very different areas of work, I have developed excellent communication skills, which enables me to care for patients in a compassionate and empathic way. Joining the Melbury Clinic has given the opportunity to acquire more varied clinical experience and to grow professionally within my role as HealthCare Assistant. With support from the team at the Melbury Clinic and VeinCare Centre, I have begun further training with the intention of joining the nursing profession.
I have worked as a secretary in a range of organisations including estate agency, aerospace and Formula 1, prior to 15 years as a Medical Secretary at Yeovil District Hospital. Whilst there I worked for the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Team before joining the Urology Department after having my daughter. Since joining The Melbury Clinic VeinCare Centre in April 2017, I have enjoyed being part of a close-knit, highly professional team, intent on delivering a high standard of care to patients. I am proud to say I work at The Melbury Clinic and VeinCare Centre.
