Ellen Watters



I qualified as an enrolled nurse in the 80s and worked in orthopaedics, care of the elderly and in trauma theatre in Edinburgh. I did the conversion course in 96 and worked for 4 years in respiratory medicine. I completed a diploma in cancer and palliative care in 2000.

I left the NHS in 2003 and have worked as an information nurse specialist for a cancer charity ever since. It is very rewarding and varied but I do sometimes miss patient contact and working with other nurses. I have worked with some amazing and inspirational nurses in my time.

I have completed further studies in CBT and in Social Sciences
