Experienced nurse practitioners
All of our practitioners are used to working in a high paced, stressful and dynamic environment. Joanne, Dan and James have many years’ experience working as nurses in all areas of the Accident and Emergency Department. They are all Specialist Nurse Practitioners (Nurses trained to an advanced level working independently/autonomously). Their speciality is minor illnesses and injuries which has provided a broad and diverse understanding of anatomy and healing and provides the ability to switch between conservative and more complex treatments easily and seamlessly.
Joanne, Dan and James have all chosen to specialise in cosmetic treatments and love what they do. What they all love about working in aesthetics is the ability to make people happier and more self-confident and all agree that it is an exceptionally rewarding job.
Joanne now runs the clinic full time to ensure that she has considerable experience to offer patients having cosmetic treatments. We feel it is important to have a practitioner whose focus is the clinic and its day to day management rather than having divided attention. She loves her new career but can’t help ‘popping back’ to the Emergency Department for the odd shift, this also helps keeps her knowledge and skills up to date for example in severe allergy/anaphylaxis management etc.
Dan and James are mostly clinic based and also still work some regular hours in the Emergency Department.
