What I Do

As an Advanced Paediatric Nurse Practitioner, I work in the Same Day Access clinic to see Children and Young People up to Age 16 years with a range of acute conditions, which would previously have been seen by a GP.

I can assess their condition and work out how best to manage their health, whether that's monitoring, a referral to another service, hospital admission or prescribing medication.

I ensure my practice is up to date by regularly attending training sessions.

I am also the Line Manager for our PCN Nurse Associate Team.

How I Support Patients

I qualified from Northumbria University in 2003 and a Paediatric Nurse, then again in 2014 as a Paediatric Nurse Practitioner and Independent Prescriber.

I specialise in general paediatrics.

I am a nurse prescriber too, so I can provide a full service to my patients and families.
