Meet the Team – Julie Ward

 Julie Ward

Julie is our carer representative on the group. She is a nursery nurse on the post-natal ward at Royal Sussex County Hospital where her main responsibilities are caring for babies on trans care. These are the babies that are not ill enough to be in a special care baby unit but not well enough to go home. This includes babies on antibiotics, blood sugar monitoring and phototherapy. 

Julie joined the group in 2020. Her husband, Ronnie, sadly passed away in 2019 but HMV enabled them to have some quality time together before he died.  From a carer’s point of view, Julie feels it is important that all carers have support and knowledge of HMV and she is a great resource for the group in this area. 

She would like to see HMV available for all who require it in every town, with support groups.
