Hi, my name is Samantha – but I’m known as Sam, I am the PCC Network Lead Nurse. I have worked in the NHS for 28 years as a children’s nurse. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings within specialist children’s hospitals, district generals, teaching hospitals and community. I then moved to commissioning where I worked within SEND, Children’s, Maternity, CAMHS and Personalisation.

I am passionate about children and their families and believe as a network we can improve outcomes through collaborative working, to influence change and improve provision for children’s critical care and surgery regionally. Outside of work I have an allotment and enjoy baking
