I have been working in homeless health for the past 15 years. As a clinical nurse specialist in the Find and Treat Tb Team, my role is to support some of the most vulnerable people through diagnosis and treatment. I cycle around all of London helping individuals take up screening for TB, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B and HIV on the mobile Health Van. I have been the LNNM treasurer for the past 2 years. As treasurer for the LNNM (in a not-for-profit organisation) this involves overseeing all aspect of its finances including book keeping, financial planning and budgeting and spending particularly around our very well attended and fun annual conference.
I feel very passionate about the practical support the LNNM provides to its members. The network has given me an opportunity to connect with other nurses and healthcare professions and share knowledge about clinical decisions and issues that impact the delivery of health services to vulnerable groups.
