My name is Jacqueline Bissong; I started my training in May 1997 and finished in August 2000. I attended Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, and graduated as a Registered Mental Health Nurse.
On completion of my nurse qualification, I worked at Lewisham Hospital on a psychiatric intensive care unit for 7 years. I then moved on to work with a primary health care team in Coventry.
Afterwards, I moved to North Wales, where I worked caring for older people. I have a vast amount of experience, as I have worked in many different areas, including on a psychosis unit and an eating disorder unit in addition to my time on the psychiatric intensive care unit.
