Nurse Claire Luford,

Nurse Claire Luford Practice Nurse - RGN. I qualified as a Registered General Nurse at St James's University Hospital, Leeds, in 1988.After a short time on an acute medical elderly care ward, I worked in a Plastic and Reconstructive/ Orthopaedic / Trauma Surgery High Dependency Unit before moving to Fife, Scotland to work in Intensive Care. I completed sixteen years in ITU, both in Fife and at the RD&E, then commenced my Practice Nurse career at Rolle in 2008.I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my job, particularly the wide range of skills we use daily to treat our patients of all ages.I am the Respiratory Specialist Nurse and therefore look after our asthma and COPD patients.

I live in Exmouth with my husband and dog and have two grown-up daughters.My main interest is SW Comms Band, the highest ranked brass band in Devon. I both play in and manage the band as we compete and entertain throughout the South West.We can regularly be seen playing on the pitch at Sandy Park in support of the Exeter Chiefs who share our sponsor.

Nurse Jacquie Spencer

I have been a nurse since I was 18 and have had a varied career. I trained at Torbay Hospital in Torquay and qualified in 1982. I worked in the acute hospital setting until joining Rolle Medical Partnership in April 2016.

I had experience in the Neurosciences  and Critical Care and the last 18 years were spent as an Organ Donation Nurse.  The main  highlights of my career so far have been the many donor families that I had the privilege to work with over the years, and being nominated to attend a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. I also sat with a panel of experts in the House of Commons for a debate on Organ Donation and Transplantation.

I work as a General Practice Nurse at Rolle with a special interest in Diabetes. I also take an active role in the research activities of the practice. I really enjoy my present job and meeting new people every day.

Exmouth is my home town and I live here with my son. I enjoy walking and appreciating our lovely part of the country. I volunteer at a local rugby club where I am responsible for ensuring adequate first aid provision and managing any concussion or head injuries for the players.
