Professional profile

Pam has been a Breast Reconstruction Clinical Nurse Specialist since 2011. She has been qualified as a Micropigmentation Practitioner for over 13 years, runs both private and NHS clinics and has regular training updates. She runs a monthly Saturday clinic at The McIndoe Centre.

Nipple and areola micropigmentation is a medical tattoo and involves the implantation of pigment into the skin to create the illusion, or enhance, a nipple and areola. Most of the patients seen by Pam have undergone breast reconstruction surgery following a diagnosis of breast cancer or the discovery of a gene mutation. Others have micropigmentation following breast cosmetic surgery. Patients usually need two appointments, four to six weeks apart, for micropigmentation treatment. Pam said she was proud to support women at a very emotional and difficult time, while being part of ‘such an amazing team of health professionals who strive for best practice and ultimately want to see a happy patient at the end of their healthcare journey.’

Since completing her nursing training in 2008 with the University of Surrey, Pam has worked at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, first on the surgical nursing ward, Canadian Wing, and then the Enhanced Recovery Area. Pam has held her current NHS role as a Macmillan Breast Reconstruction Clinical Nurse Specialist since 2011.

Current memberships

Pam regularly attends the London and Brighton Breast Meetings and has previously taught on the post graduate degree module on the Burns and Plastic on Breast Reconstruction. She is a founder, trustee and treasurer for the breast reconstruction charity Restore. She is a member of the Breast Cancer Now ‘Task and Finish group for Breast Reconstruction’. She is also a member of the Breast Reconstruction Nurses Network.

Personal profile

Pam lives in East Grinstead with her husband Andy. She has two grown-up daughters Ellen & Olivia and a very cute cockapoo called Riley. In her spare time, she loves to cook, crochet and go on dog walks.
