I am a Registered Adult Nurse and Registered Children’s Nurse and have spent the past 5 years working in a hospice caring for children and young people aged 0 to 30 years. I have worked as a community nurse caring for adults and children with complex needs and long term ventilation in their own homes, providing training and leadership to a team of nurses and carers. I was a ward sister on a children’s oncology and haematology unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital following completion of a diploma in children’s oncological nursing. I have an MA in Medical Ethics and Palliative Care.
