head of nursing - renal, haematology, oncology, palliative care
St George's Hospital
I have been nursing for over 40 years and have an extensive background in the Acute and Community care settings.
My nursing career started as an Enrolled Nurse in 1978 and at that time I had no aspirations of becoming a Head of Nursing. I was happy with the thought of becoming a very good nurse.
However, I soon realised the limitations of being an Enrolled Nurse and instantly knew this was not where I wanted to be.
I worked hard to develop my knowledge, skills and practice. I did my RN conversion after many years of being told that I was an excellent “SEN”. Becoming an RN opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that nursing possessed. I then completed my nursing degree in Critical care.
I became one of the first Black Matrons at King’s College Hospital in 2004. I felt this was the highlight of my career.
Following a stint in the Community, I returned to the acute setting to continue my aspirations of becoming a nurse leader.
I have now a Head of Nursing at St George’s Hospital for five years.
I have also been the face of the Government Trac/Trace TV advert in 2020.
