I joined Guy’s & St Thomas’ in August 2012, as the Service Manager and Clinical Lead (Haemoglobinopathies) for the South East London Community Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia services covering the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham. We also currently provide genetic counselling service for Greenwich & Bexley antenatal women booked at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Woolwich).
My role is to provide strong professional and clinical leadership to a team of skilled specialist nurses. I have a wide range of experiences in the field of haemoglobinopathies; I have worked with children, young adults, adults, families and carers with Sickle Cell and thalassaemia disease since 1998.
My previous roles as a trained general nurse and midwife, has given me the foundation to build on my wealth of knowledge, working within this client group.
I am currently the Vice chair for the Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Association of Nurses, Midwives and Allied Professionals (STANMAP).
My vision is to continue to raise the awareness of haemoglobinopathies among the local community.
