Emily currently works as a Social Care Deputy Manager in a care home for a not-for-profit care organisation. Emily has been a qualified Adult Registered Nurse for over 16 years and has worked in the social care setting for just over ten years. Having worked in a variety of clinical settings ranging from cardiology to the prison services, Emily found that her passion lies with care of the older person and has developed specialist knowledge around supporting people who live with dementia. Emily is committed to achieving best practice within her setting alongside the promotion of relationship centred care - she is keen on raising awareness of the rights of the older person and ensuring that people who live in social care environments are listened to. Emily is the Chair of the Bath, Swindon and Wiltshire Social Care Nurse Advisory Council, raising the voice of Social Care Nurses and those who draw on Social Care within the local Integrated Care Board. Emily has recently completed the Florence Nightingale Foundation Leadership Scholarship Programme. As part of the programme, Emily was asked to produce a Quality Improvement Project (QIP), the outcomes of which were later published.
