Hello, my name is Heather Henry and I am an independent public health nurse. The focus of my work is addressing health inequalities and I like to use social innovation in my work. I am trained to work in equal partnership with residents and communities and use the strengths and assets I find there, rather than focus on needs and 'fix' people. This type of work is called asset based community development. As I do my work I tend to record the journey that the residents and I travel together.
I make lots of mistakes along the way but they are just an opportunity to learn
I work around the country and I try to offer some alternative views of how community nursing and health services could be done differently. I am what is known as a Queen's Nurse - an honorary title given by the Queen's Nursing Institute and it means I offer leadership to other nurses.
