Role within the CYP Alliance

I am a Children’s Epilepsy Nurse Specialist and CYP Clinical Lead for Epilepsy South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw. I am responsible for providing clinical leadership within the epilepsy workstream as part of the CYP transformation programme.

Why does it matter?

I believe that the diagnosis of epilepsy should not prevent CYP from achieving their full potential.

My impact

I started the Bassetlaw Epilepsy Nursing Service from scratch- developing and creating a valuable and much needed service. I have supported CYP and families with all aspects of managing the diagnosis of Epilepsy – helping them to achieve maximum opportunities in life.

Something a bit different…

I am embracing midlife with new adventures. So far I have climbed a few mountains and “flown” at 100mph on the velocity zip wire!
