Christina Cutler profile pictureI started out my nursing journey by training at Kings College and qualified in 1999.  This then led me in to a rotational post covering a variety of specialities including burns and plastics.  A change in home circumstances I moved to Sheffield Childrens Hospital and worked for 5 years as a lead on the 0-5 year old ward. 

Then moving onto the nursing lead for research, medical daycare and outpatients. In 2015 I moved back south and picked up the reigns of my current job as a clinical nurse specialist in continence in Bedford and have worked in this role since.

Within this role we have introduced continence champions through the 0-19 team that is able to provide timely support to the young person and their family in order to help minimise the chance of them needing specialist support in the community from our team or onward referrals to specialists at the hospital. 

I am extremely passionate about helping children and young people to enhance their quality of life, and have self belief that they can improve their condition and gain increased confidence. I will talk to poo and wee to anyone that is remotely interested and have been known to digress onto animal bowel habits!

Outside of work I am married with 2 girls, 2 cats and a very energetic Labrador.  I love nothing more than dragging the children along for a dog walk and being at home baking (or clearing up from my children baking!!)
