Jasmine qualified as a Paediatric Nurse in 1995 and completed her masters in 2008. She has extensive experience in both Hospital and Community Paediatrics, including leading a Children’s Community Palliative Care team. She took up her current post as Paediatric Liaison and Transition nurse in 2016 at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. This post was established in response to the recognition of a gap in service provision for young people with complex needs in the transition from children’s to adult health care services. Since she has been in this role, she has pioneered the introduction of novel pathways and clinics to support young people and their families through their Journey to adulthood.
