Previous Experience

Bronwen’s previous employment was as the nurse / counsellor at a regional limb centre, developing the service into the dual roles. She was part of the multi-disciplinary team which set up clinics at the local district general hospitals and chaired multi-disciplinary meetings at all these hospitals, liaising closely with surgeons, therapy and ward staff in order to ensure that patients were seen both pre and post operatively. She worked closely with a clinical psychologist to set up a counselling service to help patients adjust to the loss of their limbs and implications of their amputations. She represented the Amputee Nurses Network at a national level and regularly spoke at conferences and trainings days organised both by the centre and other organisations.

Prior to working at the limb centre, Bronwen worked on a Younger Disabled Unit, supporting patients who had sustained a variety of neurological and neurosurgical problems, including spinal and acquired brain injury.
