Our specialist nurses

Our specialist nurses

We have a team of specialist nurses on hand to assist our dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Each of them are Registered Nurses but chose to pursue careers as specialist plastic surgery and/or dermatology nurses. So, what does this involve?

Generally, nurses choose to work in a specific discipline, or medical area. Their training is often hands on and as they learn, they are given more responsibility, supported with theory based learning. Additionally, our nurses receive ongoing training from our specialist doctors and attend conferences to ensure that they too are up to speed with the latest in medical advancements, trends and practices. Our nurses support the specialist doctors with wound care, in theatre, pre and post operative reviews, surgery performed under anaesthetic, biopsies and assisting our patients at each stage of their time with us. Between them, Angela, Chris, Nicky and Nicole have a wealth of experience and bring empathy, warmth and humour to our medical team. Learn more about them by clicking here.
