Daisy qualified as an RGN in London in 1993, she worked in Oncology before moving in to Community Nursing. After completing a BSc at Southbank University in Community Health Care in 1997 she worked as a District Nursing Sister in both London and Bristol before moving to Sheffield in 2001 where she commenced her post as a MS Specialist Nurse.
Daisy has seen huge changes in the treatment and management of MS and how the service has changed and developed over the last 18 years, she is proud to be the team leader in a progressive team of 7 specialist nurses, all of whom have bought different skills to the team.
Over recent years the Sheffield MS Nursing team have diversified to meet the demands of the NHS whist offering patients an innovative service. Some of these innovations have included the first UK joint Urology/MS Nursing clinic, a MS Nurse Acupuncture clinic, a Nurse/colorectal clinic, a MS Nurse fatigue clinic alongside nurse led relapse clinics, hospital, GP practice and DGH based clinics.
Sheffield is a large prescribing centre and the MS nurses cover a huge geographical area which brings its own challenges. The MS Nursing team currently has an ever growing caseload of nearly 4000 patients, 1600 of these are on a disease modifying treatment.
