I am the Practice Nurse Team Leader responsible for the professional development and management of the nurse team.

I have a special interest in respiratory disease and coronary heart disease and we provide nurse lead clinics and appointments for patients with these diseases.

I am a nurse prescriber and can prescribe medications for a large number or diseases and conditions such as asthma or minor ailments such as urinary tract infections (UTI) and repeat medications such as contraceptive pills.
