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.
