Matron role is a milestone for me
Mental health nursing gives a huge amount of satisfaction, says lead nurse for specialist services Angela Shorter
Angela Shorter has worked at Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust, and its predecessors, since qualifying as a mental health nurse in 1996. Her first role was as staff nurse on an acute admissions ward and she has also held matron and service manager posts. She has worked in community mental health services, court liaison and addiction services. This year, she will become matron for the trust’s new mother and baby inpatient unit, alongside her role as lead nurse for specialist services.
