Judy started as a call taker for the Ambulance Service in Manchester 1999 and became a dispatcher in 2000. She did her Technician training at Ladybridge Hall in 2002, worked at various Bolton North & South stations and then moved to Ellon Ambulance station, Aberdeenshire, in 2005 and completed her Paramedic training at Barony Castle Edinburgh in 2007.

From there Judy moved to Stroud and started her Emergency Care Degree at the end of 2007, completing this while working full time by 2011. Judy became an Emergency Care Practitioner trainee in 2008 and qualified in 2010, specialising in Minor illness and injuries and admission avoidance.

Judy went on to work for a rapid response specialist nursing team, caring for people with complex medical needs at home rather than at hospital. She then took a short career break to have her daughter, now aged 4 and as a result moved to Dudley with her Husband. Judy took a post at Russell’s Hall Hospital teaching clinical skills in 2016 and progressed onto the role of Resuscitation Officer until the end of 2017, when she accepted a post as an Emergency Nurse Practitioner in the minor injuries department of City Hospital learning further skills such as plastering, x-ray interpretation and how to translate blood results.

Judy is now a Teaching Fellow for BCU in the Paramedic Science Department.
