Amy Overend, Neonatal Sister, Royal Bolton Hospital, Neonatal Mental Health Awareness Week Spokeswoman

I originally trained as an adult nurse, working in adult intensive care, my passion for neonates came after spending time looking after sick newborns in Africa. I have worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse for 7 years in both London and the North West. I am so passionate about the care of sick and premature babies and their families. I am also a trustee and Non executive director for Bliss- the national sick and premature charity. Last year I was also a Tedx talk speaker and spoke about Neonatal organ donation.
