Trainer Profile - Julie Annakin
I began my nursing career in 1980 as a group 268 student at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, staffing on a general surgery and plastics ward. This was followed by several years on the Neurosurgical Neuromedicine unit at the Queens Medical Centre Nottingham, gaining an ENB 148 in Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Smethwick Neuro Centre. After a career break, I returned to work in Accident and Emergency, followed by several years out of the acute services as a district nurse, practice nurse and school health nurse before becoming a health and social care lecturer in Further Education. During this time I achieved a Cert Ed in Post 16 years Education. On my return to the NHS, I worked as the Immunisation Co-ordinator in Manchester, then Immunisation Lead Nurse for Tameside and Glossop and latterly as a Screening and Immunisation Manager for PHE. During this time I developed and delivered comprehensive training packages for healthcare professionals, including a training template for flu vaccination for use with midwives that was subsequently circulated nationally. In 2012 I achieved the Diploma in Travel Medicine from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (Glasgow).
