Hello Im Shelly Brett and I am a part time Nurse consultant in epilepsy based at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Queen Mary’s University Hospital London providing care for people with epilepsy in Kingston, Richmond, Putney and Wandsworth.
I spent the early part of my nursing career in the operating theatre where I practised as a theatre sister. Working in neurosurgery and neuro- critical care at the Atkinson Morley Hospital in Wimbledon (now re-located to St George’s hospital) I completed my diploma in neuroscience (DipHE) and her degree in healthcare practice (BSc Hons) from St George's University. Following this I specialised in epilepsy working as the epilepsy link nurse on the acute neurology unit at St George's hospital caring for people with complex epilepsy. During this time I also lectured the students on the neuroscience course at St George's University.
In 2005 I started as an Advanced nurse practitioner in Epilepsy. I am an independent nurse prescriber (INP) and obtained a masters degree in epileptology (MSc) from King's College London.
I have always enjoyed teaching as part of my role and cherish the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience to benefit others.
