Fiona Box

Hospital Director

Fiona Box qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in October 1996. She started her career as a newly qualified Nurse within the neuropsychiatry service at St Andrew’s Healthcare. She remained within the neuropsychiatry service for 12 years. Fiona worked in a number of different roles within a variety of neurological settings working her way from a Staff Nurse post through to Ward Manager. Each of the services provided a unique clinical service working with people’s varying levels of acuity and dependency. Fiona then moved into working within the forensic older adults’ service, developing services as well as acquiring further skills and knowledge of working with progressive neurological disorders. Here, she assisted in supporting and setting up a low secure female older adult service. Fiona then had the opportunity to set up and develop the new medium secure autism service and over three years was able to establish the service and develop its reputation in providing a tailored service for adults with autism. Following this, Fiona continued to support service development in her roles as a Lead Nurse and Modern Matron as well as being an accredited RAID Tutor.
