Julie qualified as a mental health nurse in 1995 and worked in most areas of mental health nursing all ages and in a variety of settings. She has worked predominately with older people and became very aware of the impact of our physical well-being on our Mental well-being. This has led to Julie being a lead on our physical health, supporting upskilling our staff and improving outcomes for our most vulnerable patients.
