Meet Deidre Quigley, Clinical Nurse Manager, Primary Care

Deidre says…

I am delighted to be working  as Clinical Nurse Manager in Primary Care, I am based at CWIC in Musselburgh. I will be working with clinical staff in primary care and ELHSCP to develop the CWIC and CTAC services. There are lots of challenges ahead due to COVID-19 restrictions but the teams are keen to get back to delivering care to meet the community needs and we are in the process of getting services restarted.

I have previously worked in NHS Borders, HIS and NHS Grampian.

My most recent post was  in NHS Lothian as District Nurse Team Manager for the SE Locality in Edinburgh. My clinical background is district nursing but I have an interest in QI – I completed the Scottish Patient Safety Fellowship in 2014.

I worked for two years at Healthcare Improvement Scotland within the Ihub focusing on national frailty and falls programmes.

I love to run with my chocolate lab Bonnie and have been training for the Edinburgh half marathon (if it ever happens!)  I love to spend time travelling, outdoors and with family and friends so have found life in lockdown difficult! On the plus side my IT skills have improved with ZOOM and MS Teams.
