Carrie Wilson – CKD Specialist Nurse


My name is Carolina Wilson but prefer to be called “Carrie”.

After 11 years as a health care assistant in Leicester I qualified as a Nurse from De Montfort University in 2009.

My previous nursing roles include: practice nurse, diabetes specialist nurse, cardiology and general surgery nursing.

I now work for WFHP as a Chronic Kidney Specialist Nurse my goal is “to provide a high standard of quality care for patient’s with CKD”.

As people with diabetes and high blood pressure are at an increased risk of CKD my aim is to identify your risk, providing knowledge and skills to work with you, to ensure your kidney disease is managed effectively preventing any complications.

I look forward to meeting you.
