Upper Limb Nurse Specialist
I have been working for the Upper Limb team since 2002. My role is to assess both new and follow up patients and discuss the patients management plan with my consultant. I also have my own nurse led clinics, where I see patients following their surgery. I work alongside Andrea Meddes, our shoulder specialist extended scope physiotherapist. Andrea and I hold a shoulder school together, which has been set up to give the patients a more in depth idea of what to expect following their surgery. I have an injection list which is held in the Leven Unit once a month. This is for patients who have shoulder pain but would prefer to avoid surgery. I am also a research nurse for upper limb clinical trials.
