Camilla Ballin and Catherine White are both Clinical Research Nurses working at Bristol Children’s Hospital.
Catherine started working with the MCRN in 2009 and has stayed with the team as it transitioned into the Women and Children’s Research team in 2014. She qualified in 2003 as paediatric nurse at the University of Middlesex, when she moved to Bristol to complete a rotational post at the Bristol Children’s Hospital covering Short Stay Surgical and the Renal Unit. This culminated in a position in NICU where she worked for 5 years. She has worked on a wide range of commercial and none commercial studies since joining the team and is looking forward to working on the Treat study.
Camilla qualified in 2012 at The University of Nottingham and went on to work on the Renal Unit at Bristol Children’s Hospital for just under two years. She then worked at the Spire Hospital in Bristol as a Paediatric Nurse, before joining The Women and Children’s Research Team in 2015. She has worked on a variety of projects since then, including the initial set up of the Treat study at the Bristol site.
