I am a motivated RGN (BSc & Post Grad Dip in Health Service Management) with 40 years’ service within the NHS currently working a Director of Community Services. I have specialised in diabetes for 19 years with a passion for staff and service development. My role as Nurse Consultant has involved transforming the local diabetes service to an outstanding clinically led community-based service, supporting primary care and in-patient diabetes services across North East Essex. The service has been nominated and won various awards for its innovations and sustainability.
My role also involves being a visiting fellow with the University of Essex and have developed and established diabetes courses and workshops which have been delivered across Essex which has resulted in my QIC award of Educator of the Year (2018).
