Endoscopy Nurse Practitioner

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 2007 after which I began working at Stafford Hospital in the Endoscopy Unit.  I enjoyed this immensely and was fortunate to be given opportunities to progress, gaining skills and knowledge in Hydrogen and C-Urea Breath Tests and Capsule Endoscopy.

In 2014 I began training as an endoscopist and am now independent in colonoscopies and gastroscopies.  I have also been successful in completing the non-medical prescriber’s course and now practice independently as a prescriber within endoscopy.  I continue to support the capsule endoscopy service and after setting up a c13-urea breath test service, I have trained and developed a team of nurses to continue the service.

In August 2019, I took six months out of work to pursue a personal goal of volunteering overseas.  I spent two months in a hospital in South India observing the practices in endoscopy and working with the ward manager to update decontamination practices in keeping with current guidance.  I also spent time with the nurses teaching them about a practitioner role within endoscopy and opportunities that can be available to nurses to encourage development of their roles in India.  I was also fortunate to spend time travelling in the South if India.  During this time I also travelled to Laos to work within local communities teaching English and empowering the women of those communities.

In the next 12 months I plan to become accredited as a trainer in gastroscopies and colonoscopies and look forward to supporting the national training that takes place here at the West Midlands Endoscopy Training Centre.
