I began my nursing career at Altrincham General Hospital, Market Street as an auxiliary nurse whilst gaining further qualifications to commence my nurse training. I qualified as a registered nurse in 1996 with a diploma in adult nursing at Salford University. To further my professional studies, I successfully completed my BA(hons) in Health Studies and became a member of the Medical Gastroenterology team at Salford Royal for 19 years where I held various positions, mainly that of ward manager on the Gastroenterology ward for 10 years. I then proceeded to change my career pathway from ward management to a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Oesophageal-Gastric cancer for approx 18 months. I then returned to medicine to establish and implement alongside Consultant Gastroenterologists, the liver and pancreatic services at Salford Royal. My role as specialist nurse requires me to be an active member in the delivery of care to patients with a pancreatic, liver, bile duct and duodenal cancer and liver cirrhosis initially at Salford Royal and presently at Manchester Royal Infirmary. I work alongside the hepato-biliary (HPB) multi-disciplinary team to co-ordinate suspected and confirmed cancers investigations and any interventional treatments that patients may require to alleviate their symptoms of jaundice. This requires me to be an autonomous practitioner with a high level of consulting, communication and assessment skills to enable me to deliver a high standard of care. I continue to further my professional studies by completing the Developing Clinical Skills course, Non-medical prescribing and Enhanced communication course to enable me to care for my patients autonomously. I was approached to join the liver and pancreas surgical team at MRI in August 2015 where I continue my clinical nurse specialist role, developing the service and networking with other trusts. I fully enjoy caring for my patients and their families with a hepato-pancreato-biliary cancer.
Sharon's understanding, expertise and empathy are paramount and on every occasion we have met, her compassion shines through. Sharon leaves you feeling a little bit more safe regarding this overwhelming world of cancer. A million thanks.
I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and Sharan helped me through this extremely traumatic period.She was always available to offer caring support and advice from consultation to recovery following surgery,I am eternally grateful to Sharan, professor O Reilly and the whole team at MRI
I think Sharan is absolutely brilliant. She is such a lovely lady which in my opinion contributes so much towards making her a superb brilliant specialist nurse. Nothing ever seems to much trouble for her, she explained that I could contact her anytime if I had questions relating to my diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Sharan is extremely helpful and explains medical subjects in a manner that is easy to understand. I feel extremely lucky to have a lady like Sharan being my specialist nurse, a lovely, helpful, friendly person. She is Brilliant! Thank you Sharan
