I am the lead for the Freestyle Libre in the hospital and have organized the introduction of virtual clinics and insulin pump starts during the pandemic.

My interest in diabetes is a personal one as I have lived with it for nearly 42 years

I qualified in 2002 after completing my BSc (Hons) Nursing degree at Birmingham City University. I have been a Diabetes Specialist Nurse since 2005 and started my DSN career in Birmingham before later moving to Liverpool in 2009. I have worked across secondary care in outpatient clinical settings and as a dedicated inpatient DSN and I have also worked as a diabetes research nurse. I have been a non-medical prescriber for a number of years.

In 2015 I moved into primary care and my current role is a community DSN within Liverpool Diabetes Partnership. This is an integrated community diabetes team in Liverpool which became fully operational as a new service in 2015.

Our team has won a number of awards including the QiC Diabetes Hypo awareness week excellence award in 2018 and Team of the year 2018 within our own NHS Trust awards programme.

More recently I became part of the DSN Forum UK admin team and I am also part of the Diabetes 101 (@_diabetes101) twitter team. I am looking forward to starting the MSc Diabetes Practice course at the University of Swansea in September 2020.
