Jessica Holmes, Health Care Assistant

I attained my diploma of health and social care (levels 2 and 3) at Derby College. 

From the age of 16 I have worked in various health care settings including residential and nursing homes, learning disability units, dementia wards, community care and more recently I worked in a GP surgery in Heanor prior to joining Appletree Medical Practice. 

Along the way I have developed a keen interest and gained the relevant knowledge and skills required of a health care assistant and I am especially passionate about wound care.

I grew up in Ashbourne but have lived in Alfreton for 7 years with my partner and two dogs.  In my spare time I enjoy baking, gardening and reading.

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) would be interested in how you currently use the services offered by Appletree and would appreciate if you could spare 5 minutes to complete a survey.
