Charlotte Fry

Independent Nurse Consultant

I have more than 30 years of experience working in Health & Adult Social Care. I started my career as a Care Assistant working in a Care Home, which provided the foundations of care and communication skills that have been with me throughout my career.

During my nursing career, I have worked in acute care of the older person ward, community nursing, where I gained District Nurse qualification and specialist community teams, including care home support and safeguarding adults. I have also worked in Social Care as a Senior Nurse. I now independently deliver training and support to health and social care providers.

In 2019, I was awarded the Queens Nurse title by the Queens Nursing Institute. The QN award recognises a high level of commitment and leadership in Community Nursing.

In my spare time, I am an active member of the local Women’s Institute. I am also a Carer Representative on Royal United Hospital Bath End of Life and Palliative Care Steering Group.

Having worked in health and social care for many years, I am aware of the realities of providing quality care in an ever-changing work environment and very much looking forward to working with Somerset ICB and Social Care Nurses to have a voice within the ICB.

‘I am really excited to be working with Charlotte and look forward to working with our Social Care Nurses across Somerset in the coming months. The links between health and social care as so important for our population and enabling our nursing colleagues to learn from and support each other will undoubtedly improve outcomes for people who use or live in our services. I am excited about the partnerships we will form and to supporting Charlotte and her advisory Council as it develops.’
