I am dedicated to nursing and have never wanted to do anything else. I have been working as a nurse from the age of 16 and have worked in many different fields and expertise.  I am a very hands on nurse, I trained in the old style of nursing and have also worked with many fantastic mentors, which has improved my communication, experience, knowledge, skills, confidence and compassion.

I am a Specialist Nurse (RGN) at Darent Valley Hospital and I provide clinical expertise as a Back care and Ergonomic Advisor (Staff related, within the umbrella of occupational health)

I also am the lead in manual handling and Bariatric patient care to promote patient-centered quality care, safe manual handling practice, organisation-wide staff training/ education program, which include competency checks and building safe regulations and standards. 

All incidents involving employee injuries, in particular, back, neck, and shoulders will be looked into and reported on via the Datix system and advice, support and information is given to prevent further injury. If required manual handling will assist the individual and observe them in Practise to see if further help is required.
