Join us in shining a well-deserved spotlight on the incredible nurses who make a real difference in sexual and reproductive healthcare. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the FSRH Nurse Spotlight campaign, dedicated to showcasing the invaluable expertise and dedication of these exceptional professionals.

Why Nurses? Because they are the backbone of sexual and reproductive healthcare. Day in and day out, they provide compassionate care, support, and guidance to individuals seeking help with their sexual health and reproductive choices. Their expertise spans a vast array of areas, including contraception, STI screening, abortion care, menopause support, and much more.

“The nomination was very humbling. I have worked in women's health care for over 15 years with an amazing team of practitioners and have always felt passionate about the health inequality women sometimes face.

I strive to empower women to make decisions with regards to their own health through education, be it with contraception or with treatment options for termination of pregnancy or management of heavy menstrual bleeding. I have seen the changing face of TOP over the years and hope that we can continue to break down unnecessary barriers to provide much-needed safe care where applicable.

I love what I do and would envisage that women's health care continues to be invested in and improved to make access more readily available for our patients."
