Nurse Manager Sam King Female
Lead Research Nurse Sister Jooles AllisonFemale
I have been at TMGP for 14 years
I was in the Navy as a nurse and then moved into Paediatric Nursing where I worked for many years in Portsmouth before moving into Practice Nursing.
I have 2 dogs called Dougal and Teddy who take up a lot of my home time as well as gardening.
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 moved to Portsmouth in 2013 and joined QA as a Staff Nurse in the Emergency Department. Prior to working at QA I trained and worked in London as a Children’s Nurse in a mixture of settings. I worked in ED for 6 years before exploring other career pathways and worked for CAMHS and Private Healthcare before starting in Primary Care in 2020. I specialise in seeing Children and am a huge advocate for Veterans, serving military and their families. I am a military wife and you will find me either out with my Border Collie or Scuba Diving in my spare time.
