We continue the outstanding care as given in the day throughout the night to any child who may require palliative, medical or end-of-life nursing support.
Before I qualified as a paediatric nurse, I studied joinery and furniture making. And while also doing voluntary youth work out in Lourdes, France, I got involved in supporting medical and nursing teams for the sick and dying.
It influenced me to start nursing, and so I went on to became a paediatric nurse. I worked at Blackpool Teaching Hospital’s children’s unit for 8 years, and moved to a role at Brian House to continue learning and sharing my knowledge and skills in supporting children and families in palliative care.
I'm devoted to my job at Brian House because we're nursing children with life-limiting illness as well as their family. I cherish every experience and opportunity given to me and take the reward of being able to support individuals through some difficult situations and challenging times.
