Holly Warner
Paediatrics ADHD Nurse Specialist, Gloucestershire Royal Hospital NHS trust

Holly has worked within the Paediatric Neuro-disability Service at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust since August 2021 as an ADHD Specialist Nurse. This was a completely new role within the department, and Holly has worked closely with the Community Paediatricians to develop the ADHD service further. The role as ADHD Nurse Specialist in Gloucestershire has been varied but over the past 2 years some of Holly's role has included managing the waiting list for an ADHD assessment in Gloucestershire for children between the ages of 6 and 11 years, trialling new pathways which have included implementing Qb testing and running nurse led clinics to review patients who are on medication for their ADHD.

Holly's next goal is to complete the non-medical prescribing course which will enable her to continue to develop her nurse led clinics further.

Before this role, Holly was a Paediatric Sister on the inpatient unit at Gloucester Royal Hospital. She qualified as a Paediatric Nurse in 2009.
