Jane Graham, Director, Hieda 
Trained at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, Jane has 32 years of nursing background, 17 of them in trauma and intensive care. Whilst in PICU, she had a number of different roles. Nine years of that included a role as a specialist retrieval nurse (CATS) that entailed travelling around the country to stabilise and bring back critically unstable children. To do this she learned advanced nursing and basic medical skills in resuscitation, all medical conditions, and trauma.

She went on to teach these skills to student nurses, qualified nurses and junior doctors as the Practice educator on intensive care. This role also involved lecturing regularly at South Bank University. She has been a DSL for Safeguarding at an independent boarding school where she was Lead Nurse. She is also an instructor for Qualsafe, an awarding body approved by the HSE. She is currently the director of Hieda and director of health and wellbeing for the BSA Group.


Epilepsy action 

Epilepsy Action is a community of people committed to a better life for everyone affected by epilepsy.

We want high-quality, accessible epilepsy healthcare services, so that people with epilepsy have the support they need to manage their condition.

We want wider awareness and understanding of epilepsy, so that people living with the condition are treated with fairness and respect.

Our supporters, members, staff and volunteers are united by these common goals.
