I am a registered nurse with over 30 years experience, specialising in care of the patient in the operating department and endoscopy unit.
I have worked as the Matron for the Operating Theatres and the Endoscopy Unit at Foundation Hospital Trust.
I have many years experience in practice development, including staff development and patient quality, safety and satisfaction across operating departments, endoscopy units, pre-operative assessment, day surgery and outpatient environments.
