Jacqui has specialised in respiratory medicine since 1989, having worked as a specialist nurse in both primary and secondary care. She has developed many respiratory training packages for healthcare professionals leading to a higher diploma award accredited by Liverpool University.
Jacqui has not only worked for the NHS experience but has also worked for a short period in medical marketing for MSD as she wanted to appreciate how clinical research studies were conceived. She supported the launch of Montelukast working with healthcare professionals across Europe.
In 1992 she was awarded a Medical Community Award by the Association of British Insurers for her work in respiratory care within the local communities. Jacqui worked for nearly five years across six countries in the Middle East supporting doctors and nurses with the Asthma Diploma programme from Edge Hill University.
Jacqui continued her interest in research on returning to the UK by working on the Salford Lung Study – the world’s first ‘real-world effectiveness study’. Now working as a Respiratory Nurse Consultant for Healthier South Wirral. Here she leads and supports nurses across six GP practices in all aspects of respiratory care. Respiratory care has been Jacqui’s passion and love for over 33 years. However, she appreciates most Healthcare Professionals are not as lucky as her at being able to focus on one area of patient only, therefore she strides to support them as much as possible and work in partnership with them.
