BN Hons; NF2 and Skull Base Nurse Practitioner

Tel: 01223 348672

Nicola Gamazo works as an NF2 and Skull Base Nurse. She completed her nurse training at The University of Southampton in 2005. On qualifying, Nicola worked within the Neuroscience Department.  Firstly, doing a rotation as a Band 5 staff Nurse, throughout the Neuroscience department, including Neurology, Neurosurgery and Neuro Critical Care; followed by 4 years as a Junior Sister on a busy acute Neurosurgical ward. 

Nicola took up the post of NF2 and Skull base nurse practitioner in 2013. This involves working within a multi-disciplinary team, where patients are discussed in MDT meetings before being reviewed in clinic. Since joining the team she has gained a vast knowledge about NF2 and skull base conditions and is able to provide advice and support to these patients during their initial diagnosis and throughout their care in the department. Working within Neurosurgery prior to starting this job, means that she has a good understanding and awareness of what happens when patients are admitted for surgery or investigations. She is able to provide them with information and reassurance of what happens next and answer any questions they might have about their admission.

Nicola feels honoured to work in this specialised field and knows that the service that she and her colleagues provides is important to and valued by the patients, who can benefit greatly from their knowledge and support.
