Heart Failure Nurse
I have always worked in Cardiology. At the beginning of my career I spent time in Coronary Care/High Dependency Units. I then spent time working as a nurse in Nuclear Medicine. Whilst completing my post graduate diploma, I worked as an ACS nurse at St Thomas' Hospital. This involved in patient work in addition to working in RACPC. An opportunity arose to work as a nurse specialist in Erectile Dysfunction for Cardiac patients. It was through this that I then worked in the acute heart failure service at St Thomas' Hospital. I have also worked as a Community Heart failure nurse prior to joining the Heart Failure team at St Georges Hospital.
