Regional Adult Nurse East
I knew I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare when I was living and helping my Grandmother who had dementia. I found this very rewarding and found my passion for care.
I worked as a support worker for complex learning disabilities and finished this occupation when I became a student Nurse in March 2012. I was studying for the course (Advanced Diploma in Adult Nursing Studies) at Derby University, and I qualified in March 2015.
I have worked in a variety of settings since becoming a Nurse. As a newly qualified Nurse I worked on the acute lung unit at the Royal Stoke Hospital. We specialised in caring for those with Motor Neurone Disease, Tracheostomies, COPD and Cystic Fibrosis. This was an extremely interesting place to work, and I gained a huge amount of knowledge.
I then went on to become a Disability Assessor in the community. During my time working as a Disability Assessor, I learnt a variety of new skills. I learnt about several conditions previously unknown to me and how these disabilities effect clients on a day-to-day basis and the struggles they can endure.
Prior to starting with Prestige I was the Clinical Lead/ Co-Deputy Manager for a 72 bedded Nursing and Residential Home. Here I had gained a vast amount of knowledge regarding Dementia as this was a specialist advanced dementia home
I have worked for Prestige Nursing & Care for 14+ years. I originally joined as a Care Assistant and have been committed to developing within my role at Prestige through various positions at the Sleaford branch, including Field Care Supervisor and Care Planner. I was very proud in 2015 to be promoted to Branch Manager in Sleaford and Peterborough in 2017.
I have achieved my Level 2 & 3 in Health and Social Care, and a Level 5 Diploma in Health & Social Care, Leadership and Management. I have previous experience in Childcare and Education and I am a qualified teaching assistant and learning disabilities one-to-one assistant.
I have always had a passion for improving the quality of people’s lives and I feel privileged to do this on a day-to-day basis at Prestige. I love working for Prestige – we are a dedicated team, all committed to providing high standards of care. I am beyond proud to represent the company by managing both the Sleaford and Peterborough branches.
I began adult nursing in 2004 having previously spent around 20 years as a veterinary nurse in mixed practice. Since qualifying with a Dip. HE Nursing (Adult) from Plymouth University, I have gone on to gain experience in surgical urological care, including brachytherapy and hormonal implantation for control of prostate and bladder cancers. I also spent six years working in adult intensive and high dependency care for the NHS. This discipline involves care of the critically unwell involving expert and close monitoring of chemically induced coma care.
Throughout my career, I have developed and maintained a passion for teaching and have coached and mentored many members of both professional and allied staff in order to reach their potential. In my spare time, I actively volunteer for Cancer Research UK, and am Vice-Chairlady for the Bridgwater Friends branch in Somerset, which despite being small is very busy and the branch has recently celebrated raising one million pounds for the main charity.
As a Regional Clinical Lead with Prestige, I provide professional leadership and operational management to the registered nursing workforce, across the South West Region. Working alongside our expert regional nurse team I support all aspects of complex care provision ensuring every client receives compassionate high-quality care which is evidence based and aligned with best national practice guidance.
Sue has worked at Prestige Nursing & Care since 2018. She is a registered mental health nurse and has over 20 years’ experience supporting individuals and families affected by dementia.
During this time, Sue has held positions in community mental health services, healthcare research and higher education. Her doctorate focused on resilience and well-being in friends and family members who provide care and support to a person living with dementia.
Sue’s role at Prestige focuses on ensuring our services enable people with dementia to remain in their own homes, receiving person-centred care that builds their confidence, skills and promotes well-being. Sue set up a carers support group for families living with a rare dementia in 2017. This regional group is affiliated to Rare Dementia Support (RDS), a world-leading UK-based service provided by the UCL Dementia Research Centre (DRC) funded by The National Brain Appeal.
She was a committee member on the recently published NICE Guideline for Supporting adult carers [NG150] and is currently working with the NICE Quality Standards Advisory Committee for this guideline. Sue has worked as a Specialist Advisor to the Care Quality Commission since 2013, supporting the Commission’s regulatory activity in adult social care services for people with living dementia.
I graduated from Birmingham City University in 2015 with a first-class honours’ degree as a RNLD Registered Nurse Learning Disabilities.
My passion for working within the learning disability field came from growing up in a family environment where my mother provided respite care to children with learning disabilities.
Upon graduating from university, I began working as a Registered Nurse at a residential school and children’s home caring for children with complex health needs who were unable to be cared for at home and otherwise would be cared for in hospital. Children’s healthcare needs I have supported include tracheostomy care, epilepsy management, postural care management, gastrostomy and gastro-jejunostomy care, peg feeding, regular suction (oral/nasal/tracheal/deep suction), physiotherapy routines and nasopharyngeal airway care. I also have experience delivering adult care to clients with mental health and challenging behaviour, acquired brain injury, chest physiotherapy and cough assist. My previous experience has given me the ability to work with a wide age range from children to elderly, with a broad range of clinical needs.
I joined Prestige in January 2020 as Regional Nurse for the East Region, where I have clinical responsibility for adult and paediatric complex healthcare needs. I also deliver team training and clinical competency assessments, completions of clinical care plans, risk assessments, auditing and liaising with professionals and families. I am also completing a BTECH certificate in Positive Behaviour Support with British Institute of Learning Difficulties (BILD) and my area of specialist interest is respiratory conditions.
I have been a paediatric nurse for over 16 years, initially working within a children’s teaching hospital rotating within the areas of burns and plastic surgery, orthopaedics and general medical/ neurology, nursing children from infancy up to 17 years old.
In 2005 I joined a team on a Lead Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Over the next 14 years, I worked as part of specialist team of health professionals, caring for premature infants from 23 weeks gestation and sick infants requiring many forms of intensive care and specialist treatments, surgical intervention or palliative care. I assisted with clinical research programmes, supported and delivered teaching to parents/guardians to provide complex care for their child such as tracheostomy care, enteral feeding, oxygen therapy and suction training in preparation for their discharge home. I became a student nurse mentor supervising, teaching and assessing clinical skills and competencies at the end of the training programme.
I joined Prestige in March 2020 as a Regional Nurse in the East Region leading complex care packages for children working in partnership with multi-disciplinary teams to meet the needs and expectations of children and their families, all whilst maintaining the high standard of care required and ensuring best practice.
I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1994 at East Surrey Hospital and as a Paediatric Nurse in 2000 at Kingston and St George’s University Hospitals. I have gained a wealth of experience in a variety of settings firstly in adult surgical nursing, then working in the outback of Australia providing paediatric nursing in the community, paediatric care in a hospice and on general paediatric wards. My areas of interest include oncology and high dependency. I have always enjoyed teaching and have been a mentor to many colleagues.
I joined Prestige in April 2018 where I have been given the opportunity to develop in my role. As the Paediatric Clinical Lead and Paediatric Safeguarding Lead for the company, I am particularly proud of the work we have done to further develop our paediatric training.
I have over 40 years nursing experience having qualified at the Westminster Hospital London.
I specialise in all aspects of nursing care and have experience in both hospital and home care environments, as well as in the community. I was rapidly promoted from Staff Nurse to Senior Sister and have been practicing as a Clinical Lead for the past 10 years.
I have strong leadership and management experience of complex clinical needs with a passion for personal-centred care. My motivation is always to promote and develop the highest quality care standards for those that I care for. During my time in nursing I have worked with many various health conditions and have a passion for dementia care. I am a qualified dementia trainer and have worked with clients with many complex health needs and pride myself on excellent communications skills with the families of those I care for.
Whilst working in London I have worked at various teaching hospitals including Guy’s, St Thomas’, and King’s College London. I have undergone extensive additional training that covers a myriad of adult nursing care including end-of-life care.
KIND WORDS FROM ONE OF OUR CLIENTSIN SLEAFORD
“Thank you for the outstanding care provided and particularly the support of my mother during her final few weeks. We are a very close family, but we could not have done it without you.

CARE MANAGEMENT IN SLEAFORD AND LINCOLNSHIRE
Our responsive and reliable care at home service in Sleaford means we can put care and support in place quickly and in many cases within 24-hours. Depending on your needs a comprehensive assessment will be conducted by either a registered nurse or our local care expert. We can conduct the assessment at your home, in hospital or in any specialist care setting if you are awaiting discharge back to your own home, enabling a plan of care and support to be developed that meets all your needs.
Our approach to care planning, whether it is for an hourly home care service, respite care or a permanent live-in care arrangement ensures we capture all your preferences and wishes so you can live a contented life in the comfort of your own home. We take time to find the carer that would best meet your care and support needs, making sure they are closely aligned with how you wish to live your life. Once care is in place, our team in Sleaford made up of care and clinical experts provide you, your family and our carer with an abundance of on-going support, giving you peace of mind that you or your loved one is receiving the very best home care.
COST OF OUR CARE IN SLEAFORD
The cost of our care is dependent on the level of care and support you require. If you are receiving our hourly care service, the overall cost will be determined by the number of visits and frequency of visits to you at home. Our experts will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs at your home, or in hospital if you are awaiting discharge to truly understand what you need and therefore how much care at home will cost.
We know that the cost of our care in Sleaford is very competitive when compared with other home care providers in the area. It is worth noting that when comparing the cost of home care with a care package in a care home, that the fee you pay for home care is actually for the care and support you receive. In a care home your weekly fee mainly covers your accommodation, food and social activities with the care package being only a small part of what you pay.
You may be entitled to either social care funding, healthcare funding or Government funding that could contribute to the cost of care at home. If you are faced with having to finance your own home care (known as self-funding care), there are initiatives available to you, including care fees annuities or equity release schemes that could provide the funds you need for your care and support.
