Karen Brereton qualified as a Registered Nurse in September 1997 after obtaining a diploma in higher education of Nursing. She worked for 2 years as a Nurse in General Surgery until January 1999. Karen transferred to A&E as a Nurse in the University Hospitals of Leicester.

During this time, Karen became a skilled A&E Nurse and Nurse Practitioner, undertaking courses in Advanced Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support, Suturing and Plastering, she obtained a City and Guilds in Teaching and Assessing before going onto completing a Batchelor of Science in A&E Nursing and obtaining a Specialist Practitioner qualification at the same time.

Karen has since obtained a degree in Pharmacology and in 2012 became an Independent and Supplementary Nurse Prescriber after obtaining a further degree in the study of medicines and prescribing.

In 2004, and still in A&E She took a post as an Education Practice Development Sister. Karen's role was to educate mostly post registration Nurses and advance A&E practice and development to achieve the highest standards of care to patients with minor injuries/illness and in emergency situations.

For the love of suturing patients it led Karen into a full time career in aesthetics. Karen has practiced Aesthetic Nursing since 2008, and today is an advanced Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner offering bespoke injectable treatments. Karen holds a clinic with Sue Garside at Future Skin, which is at Winchombe Street, in the heart of Cheltenham. 

By doing so it ensures that I can offer the best practice that I can, and using quality products so that I can offer bespoke treatments with an honest approach to my clients.

Following a complete and individual medical consultation with my clients, I can create a personal treatment plan to offer natural results around a patient ideas, concerns and expectations.

Karen is a member of the British Aesthetic Cosmetic Nurses Association (BACN) and subscribes to the Aesthetic Nursing Journal to ensure practice is up to date.
