I qualified as a registered nurse in 2005 and spent much of my nursing career in a critical care environment.  I am currently working both as a practice nurse and as an advance practitioner for the neurology department performing lumbar punctures in the hospital setting.  I have extensive expertise in the hospital setting and with community nursing, giving me a broad range of skills caring for patients with complex needs.

Clinically I am competent in ventilation, tracheostomy care and the management of invasive lines, cannula insertion and phlebotomy. Across all nursing settings, I am equally experienced in the completion of risk assessments for falls and pressure area care and in the assessment and management of wounds.

In my role as a practice nurse, I complete consultations with patients for a variety of illnesses and ailments. This includes taking patient observations, ECG’s, blood sampling, child and adult immunisations.  I am a practicing non-medical prescriber.

During the Covid pandemic, I worked full time as a critical care sister in a general intensive care unit under a re-deployment role. This aspect of my work gives me a broad range of skills and knowledge looking after complex patients and recognising the deteriorating patient. 

I accept instructions 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.
