Specialist Nurse Practitioner
Originally from France and having trained initially at SRH and specialised in neonatal care, I then switched to primary care and worked in Dorset where we had moved to before coming back to Chichester which I am particularly fond of. I consolidated my skills as practice/nurse practitioner and joined Maywood surgery in 2009. My specialties are women’s health /diabetes/minor illness and I am particularly keen to teach nurses/paramedics and medics.
I love music and walking my cocker spaniel and spending time with my husband of course!
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
I am a St.Georges trained nurse, who also has a BA (Hons) in English. Having worked in Primary Care as District Nurse, Practice Nurse and Project Managing service development, I'm happy to be part of the Maywood team, carrying out Chronic disease monitoring, Child and Adult Immunisations, the Leg Ulcer Clinic, women's health care, promoting health, and treatment room.
I trained between Charing Cross, Chelsea and Westminster hospitals . My past experience has included working at hospitals in day surgery theatre and in the community with the district nursing team . I enjoy working at Maywood and the variety in my role in the treatment room which includes travel advice and assessments, child and adult immunisations and wound care.
I qualified from Brighton University as a nurse 2 years ago and have been at Maywood Surgery a year in total now. I previously worked within a hospital setting as a HCA and a nurse, however felt that practice nursing was the path I wanted to go down. My role within the practice includes Adult and Child immunisations, wound care management, cervical cytology, phlebotomy and treatment room duties. I am always keen to learn new skills and very happy I have joined the team at Maywood.
