“I have worked in the Health Service for 35 years of which 10 years was as Sister of the Intensive Care Unit in Craigavon Area Hospital during the times of great unrest in Northern Ireland. The remaining 25 years I worked in management at various levels within the Health Service. My final five years was as General Manager for Acute Services, across two hospital sites. I retired from this post in November 2010 but remained on the hospital as and when required rota as co-ordinator for Acute Services.”
