I strive to provide the best clinical care I can for my patients and this continues to be my main focus. I am very approachable, flexible and supportive. I communicate well with patients, their families and carers, as well as other professionals involved in the patient’s care such as the GP. I keep my knowledge up to date so that I can provide a high level of evidenced-based care.
