"I feel privileged to support people with diabetes, their families and carers. There is a light bulb moment during the delivery of education and care, when you realise that you are working to improve your patient’s life. That is why I love being a nurse."

"I have worked in women’s health for 15 years. I was fortunate to have the most wonderful gynaecology ward sister as my inspiration when I was a student, which led me to my speciality. I am proud to work with an amazing team who every day show women the care and empathy needed at their time of need. From feelings of loss and grief during a miscarriage, to the joy of conceiving with fertility treatment, we are there to give care and compassion at every stage of a woman’s life."

"Never underestimate the power of being able to reach out and make that difference. I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the bravest people who, despite having everything stacked against them, still manage to smile. As a nurse lecturer, it is a privilege to see individuals starting on their journey."
