Nursing & Midwifery Council – Registered Mental Health Nurse

BSc (Hon) Health and Social Care

 

I am a registered Mental Health Nurse with over 30 years post registration experience. During this time I have supported people from a diverse range of communities who have experienced an array of cognitive impairments and mental health distress. My roles have involved working with people engaging with a variety of community and in-patient departments within the NHS, the British Military and the criminal justice system.

 

I have worked in my current role as a Mental Capacity Assessor with TFS since 2019, during which time I have further developed my proficiency in assessing Mental Capacity for a broad range of financial and legal decisions.

 

I am passionate about the importance of individuals being given the opportunity to express their own opinions and decisions, and where necessary assisting them in gaining access to the correct support which is tailored to their individual needs.
