Clinical Nurse Specialist

Chrissy Boland 2Biography

I have worked as a Rheumatology Clinical Nurse specialist for 3 and half years. Early on in my career I specialised in Haematology and Oncology and did a specialist degree while I worked in London at the Royal Marsden NHS trust. This led me to be offered a post as a senior manager for the Haematology Day Unit at the trust for which I enjoyed for over 5 years. I later took a post as a palliative care nurse at St. Gemma’s Hospice.  I am passionate about patient care and my other passion is Pilates. I now also teach a Pilates class for staff which has been great for team spirit.
