  • Health & Justice
  • Substance Misuse
  • Wellbeing & Mental Health

Below, you can click through and hear from some of our nurses on why they do what they love:

“I love to educate younger service users about sexual health and contraception. Even if it just changes one person’s thought process, it is worthwhile.” Jodie, Clinical Nurse Specialist

“Every day is different; I have never worked in an area where there is such diversity. I work with a good, supportive team, the work is interesting and the learning never stops.” Angela, Lead Nurse

“Even after all these years of working within this caring profession, I still feel honoured that people still trust and share the most private aspects of their lives with ourselves.” – Denise, a Registered General Nurse

“I have always had an interest in sexual health from when I worked as a midwife. I wanted to be able to give women in my care reliable advice on contraception and their sexual health.” – Sue, Head of Service

“It is interesting working with a diverse client group and I enjoy providing support and information to empower people to maintain good Sexual and Reproductive Health.” – Kerry, Health Advisor

“The patients are what make me tick, and if I can help someone a little bit in their times of need, then that’s a job well done.” – Jane, a Clinical Nurse Specialist
