Retired - Former Chief Nursing Officer within the NHS

I worked in the NHS for all of my career, becoming a Chief Nursing Officer and a Chief Operating Officer in an NHS Trust and Health Authority.

I am very grateful for the opportunities I had to study for degrees part time [at this college and others] while I was working.

I would not have been able to get these qualifications any other way and this access to Further and Higher education was the most important thing  to help me to further my career.

Now I am retired and I enjoy having more time to devote to things such being a Corporation Board Member, learning to cook and taking astronomy lessons.
