Nursing Team


As most of you know I have been a nurse at Court Thorn for a very long time!

I have 3 children who have all left home, so that gives me more time to enjoy cooking and a new found love of growing vegetables.

I have a special interest in diabetes but love all aspects of my job.  For those of you who don’t know me, I am the loud one usually wearing a pair of Dr Martens!


I am from Penrith, where I still live and am married with 2 children.

When I joined the practice I had previously worked at both Carlisle and Penrith Hospitals .

I have worked in the Radiology departments of both, along with The Outpatients department,  The District Nurses and The Minor Injuries department at Penrith.

I am excited to be part of the team here at Court Thorn and look forward to transferring my skills.


I’m a married mum of 1 girl and I have lived in Durdar for 14 years. Before joining Court Thorn, I was a Health Care Assistant at Brampton for 5 years and before that I worked on the Cardiology ward and Heart Centre at the Cumberland Infirmary for 10 years.

I am enjoying being part of the team here at Court Thorn and being able to transfer my skills here that I have learnt over the years but also learning lots of new skills and gaining new knowledge and experience from the best team!!
