Specialist Nurses

Nurse Ruth Allinson
Diabetes Nurse Specialist.

I have worked in Diabetes since 2005, for 10 years as a Diabetes Specialist Nurse at Bromley Diabetes service and since then at Elm House and Cator Medical. I am also qualified to prescribe diabetes medication so I can provide a one stop shop for diabetes within the practice.

Helen Andrews
Nurse Practitioner

I qualified with a BSc (hons) in Nursing Studies in 1998 at South Bank University. My background is in Accident and Emergency where I have worked for most of my career, predominantly at Lewisham Hospital, initially as a staff nurse but progressing to the position Sister. In 2009 I trained to become an Emergency Nurse Practitioner, continuing to work in the Accident and Emergency Department, and then the Urgent Care Centre; subsequently passing my Independent Nurse Prescribing course in 2011. I have worked at Elm House and Cator Medical centre since 2016. My background in Emergency Care gives me invaluable experience and knowledge for the Urgent Clinics I run across both GP Surgeries.
