On the 1st of June 2003 I took up the post of Nurse Consultant (Older Adults, Mental Health) in Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. I trained as an Independent Prescriber in 2004 and started to develop a Nurse Led Dementia assessment unit. In 2006 I was asked to take on the role of Non-Medical Prescribing Champion for the three Trusts,- Acute, PCT and Mental Health, and I have helped develop competency workbooks, audit tools, reflective practice and on-going professional development for all prescribers in Cumbria. I hold an honorary lecturer post at the University of Cumbria and teach on the student nurse and Dementia degree course.
