Valerie has worked in general practice for the past 15 years, firstly as a practice nurse then after gaining a Master's degree in Advanced practice as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Valerie was the lead respiratory clinician in her last two general practice posts but now works in Older Peoples Medicine within the community Inpatient units across Norfolk. She is also lead for a PCRS affiliated group and has undertaken work for the CCG targeting the reduction in COPD admissions and nurse training. She is vice chair of Norfolk and Waveney STP Respiratory RightCare Working Group. Another area Valerie really enjoys is teaching and education and regularly teaches nurses across East Anglia as a freelance trainer/educator. .Valerie sits on the Executive committee of PCRS as well as the Education Committee
