Emily Cooper RGN. I qualified in 2001 and trained at Brighton University. Once I qualified I worked on the hospital wards for 18 months. My main background is oncology and palliative care. It’s an area I find very rewarding. I have been in practice nursing for over five years. Over this time I have learnt so many new skills. My main focuses in practice nursing are asthma and wound care. When I’m not working I enjoy being out on the tennis court!
