Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline
Catherine ventured north from sunny Cambridgeshire in February 1991 to start her nurse training in Edinburgh at the Western General ill-prepared for the cold, the homesickness and the fact that people would not understand her accent! After almost 30 years she is still happily living in Scotland having ventured across the bridge to the Kingdom of Fife.
She is the Senior Charge Nurse in day surgery theatres at Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline, responsible for eight theatres and almost 60 staff, across a range of specialities. She has an absolute desire to drive day surgery forward in Fife and aspire to be the leading hospital in Scotland for day surgery learning from colleagues south of the border.
Our of work she enjoys cycling (in the summer), walking her dog, Gordon, and good food and wine - she hopes will be offset by the first two!!
