Job Title:
Nurse Practitioner for Colposcopy & Women's Health Unit Sister
The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Jilly Goodfellow has worked at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne for 35 years; she has worked within Gynaecology for 32 of those, as both a Staff Nurse and Ward Sister. She is one of the Nurse Practitioners for Colposcopy/Gynaecology and she is also the Senior Sister in the Women’s Health Unit.

Jilly works with Jill Fozzard (Nurse Practitioner for Colposcopy) and they are known locally as the CERVIX SISTERS for their love of their job and the fact they like to knit/bake/stitch anatomically correct pelvic organs! 

Jilly has presented her work both nationally and internationally, in relation to supporting women who have learning disabilities, for cervical samples and colposcopy examination. She is on the committee of the UK and Ireland Colposcopy Nurses Group and helped pre-pandemic to organise a yearly conference. 

Jilly is married to Alan and her weekends are spent being the Church Warden and Authorised Lay Minister of St Peter’s Church in Falstone near Kielder reservoir where she lives. The role is certainly not just ringing the bell and giving out the hymn books on a Sunday – like nursing there are always courses and meetings to attend!!

"Forum was managed extremely well, and very professional"

IAPT National Networking Online Forum 2021 - 21st January 2021

“I am sure like everyone else I was apprehensive with going online, not sure how we could network, the ability for all participant's to participate and the quality of the presentations - all my fears were diminished this turned in to be a great day, networking, leading and sharing still occurred and links still formed. The presentations were excellent and the quality of the forum and set up great and so easy to follow and timing excellent.”

Reduce Paediatric Emergency Attendance Online Conference – 8th October 2020

“The conference has been far more engaging than in a conference centre. This I think is because of the ability to participate in chat throughout and the use of the breakout discussions.” “Excellent day! Organisation was great - loved the break out rooms for chat. Virtual chat added another really useful way to interact during the day, which isn't available to us at the physical conferences.”

Leading Change in Clinical Coding Online Conference - 11th September 2020

"Very informative, lots of opportunity for discussions and very well organised virtually"

Providing Support for Children on Long Term Ventilation - Tuesday 9th March 2021

"I enjoyed the group chats networking listening to others experiences, I also like that there was a lead on each group so the chats were influenced and no awkward silences that can occur on web meets. I thought the larger talks were really good and easy to listen to."

Modernising Outpatient Services Online Conference – 16th September 2020

“This is my first experience of an online conference and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wasn't sure what to expect. Would recommend to colleagues to attend future events” “This has to be the best online conference I have been to, I really enjoyed the breakout rooms.”

Advancing Ulcer Care Management Online Forum – 29th September 2020
