After graduating in 2016, I worked in Bristol on a Surgical admissions and recovery unit before returning home to the beautiful North Devon. I then worked in NDDH before joining the wonderful Wooda team in March 2019. I have completed my foundations in primary care course and more recently a masters module in minor illness.
