Jenny Walker

Clinical Nurse Specialist

Endocrinology clinics

 

What is your role and where have you worked before?

I am a sick children’s nurse (RSCN) and registered general nurse (RGN). We care for children and young people across the whole of Yorkshire with hormone and growth disorders.

Previously I've worked at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London/ Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge/Dewsbury District Hospital but now I'm based at Leeds General Infirmary.

 

What is the most important aspect of your work in GIDS?

The most important aspect of my work is to offer support and information about the medical aspects of the journey through the GIDS clinic.

 

Do you have any advice for someone coming to their first appointment with you?

Advice to someone coming for their first appointment would be to not be scared, we are very friendly!  We will try to give you very clear explanations of what we do in the clinic and will be at the end of the phone after your clinic appointments for any questions you forgot to ask.
