I qualified as an adult nurse in 1998. My career so far has included working both in secondary and primary care. It is through these varying roles that I have gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge which I apply every day in my job. I have worked in the OPAT team at Heartlands for just over 3 years in a role which is constantly changing and challenging. Currently a very important part of my role within OPAT is education, ensuring safe and appropriate use of antibiotics across the trust and into the community setting.
