Biography

Francesca is currently the Head of Nursing at the Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health which is a large unit that provides a wide range of specialist fertility treatments and services. She has a special interest in gamete donation and surrogacy, and also training and development for nurses and HCA's within the fertility setting. Francesca qualified in September 2005 from London Southbank University and after a 2-year period in an infection and immunity setting, decided to specialise in fertility and reproductive health. She has worked in various busy London units in both the NHS and private sectors and has had the opportunity to learn and develop a wide range of skills, including performing surgical sperm retrievals under consultant supervision, and assisting with the management of the fertility needs of patients diagnosed with a blood borne virus. Francesca recently co-authored a publication that was produced by the Department Of Health, to provide surrogacy best practice guidance for healthcare professionals working outside of the reproductive medicine setting. She is also extremely passionate about her role as part of the Royal College of Nursing, fertility nursing forum steering committee and feels that this is the perfect opportunity to share knowledge, best practice and to enhance the skills and knowledge of fertility nurses and HCA's who are working within, or who have an interest in the reproductive medicine field. Recently Francesca has co-authored the RCN fertility nurses career progression and education framework publication which was launched in March 2018. Francesca is also an active member of the SING (Senior Infertility Nurses Group) which is a national group that shares and promotes best practice for fertility nursing.
