Alison qualified as an RGN in 1986 having worked in many areas over the years including orthopaedics and trauma, renal dialysis and in later years community nursing, and then as a Macmillan Facilitator.
When out in the community Alison studied for a BSc in Palliative and Supportive Care. It was this, alongside the nursing care that she provided for people at end of life within their own homes, that gave her a real passion for great end of life care, accessible to all.
For the past four years Alison worked (in a voluntary capacity) with people who are street homeless. Great end of life care is not always accessible for this particular group and this has led her and her local hospice to try to change this.
In her spare time Alison enjoys holidaying in interesting places, going out with friends and family and messing in the kitchen at home!
