Kathryn Waldegrave qualified as a nurse in 1995 and has enjoyed a varied clinical background. Areas of clinical practice include gynaecology oncology, breast cancer care, surgical outpatients, clinical nurse advisor and lead primary care nurse at HMP New Hall, a women's and young female offenders estate in Wakefield.
In 2013, Kathryn qualified as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (Health Visiting) working in South Leeds, an area with multiple challenges and high levels of safeguarding. Utilising and combining her clinical practice experience in prison nursing alongside her Health Visitor work, Kathryn focused her Masters research to explore the impact on infant mental health of having a father in prison. From this she has successfully published two articles and has also presented her work at a national conference.
Kathryn joined the University of Leeds in 2016 as a lecturer and PhD student. She currently teaches on a number of undergraduate modules and her post graduate work is focused on the assessment and management of frailty in the older prison population.
