Specific Injuries Experience
Sheila is a qualified Nurse and highly experienced Case Manager and spinal cord injury professional. Having worked at the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville for 14 years, Sheila has developed an extensive understanding of the lifecycle of a spinal cord injury. Subsequently, as a Case Manager she works with this client group closely in the community co-ordinating their care, equipment, housing and social needs.
Sheila has supported the care of clients with tracheostomy and ventilator needs within the inpatient setting.
Sheila is experienced in managing the inpatient and community needs of clients with Cauda Equina Syndrome and has worked regularly with clients with the specific needs of this condition over the years.
In her time working with spinal cord injuries Sheila has also gained significant experience in managing the needs of clients with orthopaedic injuries caused in the same accident or as a subsequent injury. She would be competent in the assessment of these injuries in isolation as well. Similarly, Shelia has worked with clients who have had amputations, pressure sores, and mental health issues, but would only comment on these in association with a spinal cord injury.
Sheila qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1995 from Thames Valley University. To consolidate her learning she worked within an Acute Medicine and Cardiology Ward for 2 years before moving to the National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC) at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. Sheila has worked within the speciality of spinal cord injuries ever since. During this time, she has gained comprehensive knowledge of the care of clients with spinal cord injury, from time of acute injury admission through to their reintegration back into the community following spinal rehabilitation.
Since leaving statutory services in 2014 Shelia has had a very successful career in Case Management, with ongoing primary focus on her spinal cord injury expertise. She has developed strong relationships with care agencies and rehab providers, and has played a big part in the rehabilitation of many clients. She is able to carry out Immediate Needs Assessments and Case Management intervention for clients who have sustained catastrophic injuries and who present with a range of health and social care needs. She has experience of managing cases pre and post settlement and has also worked to obtain interim fund payments. Sheila is a member of the Spinal Injury Association (SIA), the Multidisciplinary Association of Spinal Cord Injury Professionals (MASCIP) and the Royal College of Nursing.
