Guardian article on being an HCV Nurse
Posted on: March 11 2015, 05:51 pm

I work one day a week as a hepatitis nurse specialist. I didnít start my nursing career until I was 36 because there wasnít a training college in the Bahamas where I lived.

I have spent 30 years at Mount Vernon hospital but reduced my hours to look after my husband who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.
 
I still felt I had something to offer after he passed away and put the word out to colleagues. Someone mentioned hepatitis and I thought, why not?

I am on the road every Wednesday by 7.30am after a bowl of porridge. It is a lovely drive down through the Chilterns listening to Heart radio and I still enjoy my job five and a half years later.
