I completed GP training in 2019 and am excited to be part of the Station House Surgery team. In my spare time I love enjoying the outdoors.
I am qualified Registered Nurse and am currently a Research Nurse. Prior to this I was a Practice Nurse at the surgery. I work alongside Dr Cowling (Research Lead GP) inviting and recruiting patients to approved research projects. I may contact you in regard to a research project the practice is involved with. Research is about finding new knowledge that can lead to changes and improvements in treatments and patient care therefore it is an important aspect of NHS work. All the research we are involved with is carried out under the banner of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) North West Coast Clinical Research Network.
I studied nursing at the University of Northumbria and qualified in 2013. Before Practice Nursing I worked in a medical assessment suite in Newcastle before moving to Kendal. My day to day here at the surgery includes wound care, smears, injections, and contraception advice. I also assist the GP's in completing annual reviews for conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma.
