Louise Parker, Lead Nurse Specialist at the Royal Free Hospital, London talks about skin care and scleroderma.
Louise started work in the scleroderma unit of the Royal Free Hospital in April 2005. Prior to this she worked for several years at St Thomas' Hospital, London. During this time she gained experience in various specialities but particularly enjoyed looking after Lupus patients. Louise liaised regularly between the specialist unit at St Thomas' and the ward she worked on which had dedicated facilities for this group of patients. Louise quickly became interested in connective tissue disease and decided that this was the area she wanted to specialise in. She noticed a job as a clinical trials and education nurse at the Royal Free Hospital in early 2005 and the rest as they say, is history - Reference: The Royal Free Hospital.
