I then went on to work in urgent care in the community, and as a Practice Nurse for a number of years.  I undertook my Health Visitor training in Manchester in 2003 and worked in Warrington for eight years, specialising in child protection and working with young parents.  I then undertook a Specialist Nursing Role in a children’s disability team and specialised in Autism, where I worked for eight years until joining the University of Chester.
