Living with hepatitis C is tough so I give my mobile number to patients

"I’m a semi-retired specialist nurse and don’t mind if people call when they need reassurance or a friendly voice."

I work one day a week as a hepatitis nurse specialist. I didn’t start my nursing career until I was 36 because there wasn’t 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?
