Senior Research Nurse - 4AT study
Since qualifying as a registered nurse in 1996 Jill has worked in a variety of clinical areas. She first discovered her love for research in 2009 whilst working in the Transplant Unit in the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, when she had the opportunity to work on research projects part-time.
Following on from this experience she decided that the next step in her career was to work in clinical research full-time, and so joined the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility in 2011. There, she worked on a variety of Phase I-IV studies across a wide range of specialities. Jill joined the Emerge team in August 2015 to work on the 4AT study, and is excited about focusing on the needs of elderly patients in the emergency department.
