NMC Number: 96J0547E

Qualifications: Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN), V300 Independent Nurse Prescriber.

I qualified as an Adult Mental Health Nurse in 1999 from the University of Central Lancashire.

During the last 20 years of nursing I have predominantly worked within the area of Adult Psychiatry, in both the acute in-patient and community settings. I have also worked within Substance Misuse Services and up until a few years ago held a Professional Lead Nurse role for a large NHS Mental Health Network.

In 2015 I was successful in qualifying as an Independent Nurse Prescriber from Edge Hill University, this led me to follow a keen interest I have for Neurodevelopmental conditions into a role as an Adult ADHD Specialist Nurse and Prescriber within the NHS and also within the Private Sector working alongside Psychiatry UK.

I am hugely passionate about nursing and ADHD and pride myself on providing high quality, compassionate person centred care for all.

Within Psychiatry UK, I lead the Adult ADHD Titration Service and a highly skilled team of nurse prescribers who support the Consultant Psychiatrists during the initiation and stabilisation of ADHD treatment. We work closely with the patient and the Doctors during this time offering weekly support and guidance based on NICE Guidance with the aim of stabilising the patients ADHD symptoms.
