Lead Nurse for Mental Health
Specialist Mental Health Practitioner at Royal Primary Care Clay Cross and Grassmoor.
As a registered Mental Health nurse with a First Class Degree in Nurse Management and Professional Practice, I have experience in Eldery, Acute, Foresic and Crisis Team Nursing. Being a Non-Medical Prescriber I am able to diagnose and treat Mental Health conditions within a primary care setting.
I have a special interest in Support Orientated and Cognitive based therapy to underpin correct treatment and signposting to the most appropriate care pathway.
I have specialised in Mental Health Nursing since qualifying with BSc (HONS) from Sheffield University in 1999. Since that time I have undertaken roles in Forensic, Acute and Crisis settings, gaining a wealth of experience in risk management.
I am a Independent nurse prescriber and mentor for students within the organisation.
I have a particular interest in Solution based therapy and Psycho-social interventions to promote self recovery within the Primary care setting.
