I am the treasurer of the SING group. I have been a member of the SING group for 5 years.
I have worked within the field of fertility for 18 years at Gateshead Fertility Unit and helped establish the unit. I have always had an interest in women’s health having worked on Gynaecology and early pregnancy unit from qualifying.
I feel very privileged to work within this specialist area and be part of the team that care for the patients. It is very important to encourage nurses to work within this area through education and experience.
