'My missions with MSF, working as a nurse/midwife, began during the conflicts in Liberia, South Sudan and Afghanistan. I took unpaid leave from the NHS to join teams working in conflict zones, treating displaced people who had walked for days to bring their severely ill relatives to the only healthcare facilities available. When the outbreak of Ebola occurred in W. Africa I undertook missions in Liberia at the height of the outbreak, and Sierra Leone as a health promoter.'
