I joined Darent Valley Hospital in 2010 as a Tissue Viability Clinical Nurse Specialist.

My background is Spinal Cord Injury, ITU Burns and Community Nursing.

Tissue Viability is an extremely interesting and challenging area of nursing; it not only looks at non-viable skin but the prevention of the skin becoming damaged. The service covers all inpatients and allows us to recommend and support high standards of practice across the Trust.  

The Tissue Viability Nurse role is very dynamic and is involved in many other areas of nursing i.e. Safeguarding, Infection Control, Nutrition and Education.
