Independent Nurse Prescriber , BSc (Hons) post graduate Nurse Practitioner Primary Care, BA (Hons) Adult
I qualified as a registered Adult Nurse in 1999 from Oxford Brooks University with a honours degree. I have subsequently completed a post graduate BSc (Hons) in my chosen field as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Primary Health Care.
I consolidated my training working as a Staff Nurse in two large, busy teaching hospitals. Firstly, in acute medicine followed by a move to Accident and Emergency. I developed critical skills in these roles to become a competent, autonomous nurse working within the NMC code. This background has enhanced my skills in primary care. A broad medical background underpinned chronic disease management and an acute setting enabled me to work with patients who were acutely unwell and make decisions on the need for referrals into secondary care.
I am currently employed as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in a busy general practice situated in a market town. I work independently and see pre-booked and on the day patients with a wide range of conditions. I am able to assess, diagnose, prescribe, refer and evaluate each case. I am an Independent Prescriber (M Level). I am fully competent with examination skills and up-to-date with prescribing issues, accountability, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.
Within my current role, I have developed a special interest in family planning and reproductive health. I am a member of the FSRH and trained to fit contraceptive implants and intra-uterine devices.
I accept instruction from both claimant and defendant solicitors and insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under Civil procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
