During her time on the ward, she was appointed as the wound care link nurse as well as completing her Mentorship qualification. In 2012 she started working for the NHS School Health Nurses based in the south of the county. This gave her the opportunity to explore a different aspect of nursing as well as learning new skills in teaching, vaccinating and health promotion. After 5 years working for the NHS, she moved into Independent School Nursing which allowed her to utilise previous skills as well as enhancing knowledge on first aid and emergency medication. During the Pandemic in 2020 Hannah returned to Adult Nursing and in early 2022 she started working at WHMP. Her current interests are wound care and baby vaccinations.
At home, she lives with her husband, 2 children and a cockapoo called Twix. Outside of work when not taking her children to and from their sporting commitments, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, exercising, and football.
