Contact Details


Sarah is from a military background, and since leaving the military she has worked in care homes and multiple trusts across the country doing shifts on wards and A&E. Her nursing career has mainly been in community nursing, which is where her passion lies. She recently left practice after a few years of being a senior community nurse to hopefully inspire, educate and make the next generation of nurses as enthusiastic as she is about nursing (community nursing in particular).
