Carlie Hopper

I have been the Clinical Nurse Manager for the Acute Hospital at Home/Virtual Ward at the Eastern site of the Royal Devon University Hospital for around 3 years. OPAT was one of our first pathways and is now well established in Eastern. We are working with the Northern AHAH team to develop it further there as well. My background includes CMN roles for SDEC and Triage and the Acute Medical Unit, and have also worked in Surgical Admissions and Plastic Surgery.
