Kerry Waterfield

ST6 palliative care

Kerry, from Northern Ireland, has been able to combine training with family commitments for the last 16 years – thanks to flexible opportunities in the region. Kerry took time out of training when her four children were young but was supported and encouraged to come back to start her speciality training when her fourth child started school.

“It’s an amazing career and a great place to train with a wide variety of experiences but very friendly and supportive too.”

“My colleagues really encouraged me to make this step.

The fact that there was a supported way ‘back in’ was really important to me.”
