Tracy Reed joined us earlier this month as a Urology Nurse covering Yorkshire and surrounding areas. She will also be covering the North East 1 day per week. Currently she is busy completing her Manfred Sauer induction programme, but will be soon be out on the road meeting patients and healthcare professionals.
Tracy qualified in Doncaster in 1992. Shortly after this, she worked on an orthopaedic ward before moving to a private hospital, a care home and then back to a medical assessment unit in Doncaster where she stayed for several years as a bank nurse, whist bringing up her young family. When her children were older, she worked as a staff nurse with a health visiting team, where she became passionate about treating patients suffering with incontinence.
Tracy joined the continence link nurse forum and took the opportunity to specialise in the field of continence in 2006. She then worked as a Continence Sister in the Doncaster community for six years assessing, planning and treating patients with all types of continence issues. Tracy left the NHS in 2012 to pursue a career in the private sector, but still within the continence arena, as a nurse advisor and product specialist.
Tracy is committed to helping to tackle continence issues and is a firm believer in advising, supporting and promoting ways to help sufferers live their best life. She is very much looking forward to being part of our specialist urology nursing team and supporting both patients and healthcare professionals. Married for 29 years with two grown up children, Tracy loves going to the theatre, walking, and supporting the mighty Castleford Tigers Rugby League Football Club.
