She completed her RGN training in 1990 at The Lakeland College of Nursing in Carlisle and worked in Dermatology Outpatients and Accident and Emergency. She went on to train as a children’s nurse at Newcastle University and worked as a paediatric sister in A+E whilst completing her degree at St Martins College at the University of Lancaster before going into Nurse Management. In 2013 she moved to Blackpool to manage a 10 bedded dermatology unit with a busy outpatient department.
In 2005 she took up a post as Dermatology Specialist Nurse at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. She completed her Nurse Surgery course at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham which enabled her to set up her own biopsy list.
She moved back to Carlisle to be nearer her daughter and grandchildren and set up the Dermatology service at Wigton Hospital which offers advice and phototherapy treatment clinics.
She works alongside Dr Chaudhri at Arnside House, Carlisle and at Orchard House in Workington.
