Jacqueline Wilson

Jacqueline Wilson is the Senior Sister of the Day Case Chemotherapy Unit and Community Chemotherapy Service at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital.

Jacqueline Wilson is the Senior Sister of the Day Case Chemotherapy Unit and Community Chemotherapy Service at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital.

Jacqueline has been passionate about haematology since her first day as a student on the inpatient haematology ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

Originally from Nottingham, Jacqueline trained in adult nursing at The University of Birmingham where she achieved a Bachelor of Nursing Degree (BNurs Hons). She has been qualified for 14 years and has been a haematology nurse since qualification.

Jacqueline began her career in inpatient haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where she worked for six years, both in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital general haematology and bone marrow transplant unit. She became a Sister in this department until leaving Birmingham to continue her career in London, in in-patient haematology as a Senior Staff Nurse. She held a post at Hammersmith Hospital for 12 months and at St Bartholomew’s Hospital for six months, before returning to Birmingham to take up the position of Senior Sister of the Chemotherapy Day Unit at Heartlands Hospital.

During her time at Heartlands, Jacqueline was Senior Sister of the Day Unit for 18 months. She was seconded to set up the Community Chemotherapy Service, a service initiated to treat haematology patients with myelodysplastic syndrome andmyeloma requiring short subcutaneous chemotherapy in their own homes in order to reduce hospital visits, reduce stress and financial burden of repeated hospital visits and improve the quality of life of these patients. The service has been successful and continues to this day.

Since returning from maternity leave, Jacqueline has resumed her post at Heartlands Hospital, managing the Day Unit as well as the Community Service. Alongside her team, Jacqueline provides dedicated haematology and pre- and post-transplant care to patients, as well as outpatient chemotherapy, trial chemotherapy and stem cell collection and apheresis services.
