Welcome to our new SCI Nurse Specialist

Welcome to Darren Bracken, the newest addition to our team of SCI Nurse Specialists.  Darren is based in Sheffield and covers Yorkshire and the North East regions. He writes:

“I started my working life in local industry before becoming a nurse and spent over 16 years working at the Princess Royal Spinal Unit caring for patients from initial injury to discharge. Within this role, I managed patients who required mechanical ventilation, worked with all patients on setting rehabilitation goals on a daily, weekly and long-term basis, and was involved with the readmission of patients requiring further rehab or surgical intervention. I was aware of the work of SIA through the members of the Peer Support team who visited the centre.

“I am very excited to take up this role within the SCI Nurse Specialist team and relish the opportunity to increase knowledge and understanding of SCI across the wider community. I have always been passionate about SCI and being able to join SIA at a time of expansion, excites and inspires me.”
