Jane completed her Advanced diploma in 1999, degree in Nursing Studies in 2002 and most recently successfully completed Non-medical Prescribing in 2021.

The unit receives patients back from all 11 of Rotherham Foundation Trusts theatres and has an approx. turnover of 5000 patients per year. Jane works within all areas of Day Surgery pathway including the bespoke pathway which tailors care for more complex patients. This pathway was developed for patients who have been identified as not meeting the standard day surgery criteria but care via day surgery centre would be in the patient’s best interest and therefore an individual bespoke pathway is required. Examples of patient’s needs whom may require consideration of bespoke care pathway are a patient who needs a carer or prison officer to be with them at all times or in the immediate peri-operative period. Jane lives with her husband, 3 teenage daughters, 2 dogs and a cat. When not at work you can find Jane spending time with her family and friends or walking her dogs.
