BRCA Kent, has no association with any Hospital Trust, however we are lucky enough to have local Healthcare Professionals who are able to give us advice.
Breast Clinical Nurse Specialist
After qualifying in 1992 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital I moved to London and trained in burns and plastics nursing at Charing Cross Hospital. In 1997 I moved to The Royal Marsden hospital and did my degree in cancer nursing. I then moved to Kent in 2003 and worked as a breast care nurse until starting a family in 2009. I now run the East Kent family history service assessing womens' breast cancer risk and liaising with Guy’s genetics service to arrange BRCA gene fault testing. I now co-host the Canterbury BRCA Kent meetings. I love my job! I live near Canterbury with my husband, 2 girls and my cat Monty.
