After leaving school I qualified as a nurse in 1983 at Barnsley District General Hospital, I have worked at several hospitals within South Yorkshire, some of this work has included further training to develop my nursing, I have also been fortunate to work in the Middle East during in my nursing career which I feel has contributed greatly to my understanding of other peoples religions, cultures and customs whilst working with in a multinational work force.
