Laura Carter-Penman


Regional Lead Nurse

Laura Carter-Penman qualified as a nurse at the University of East Anglia in 1996 and her first roles were at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn supporting both planned and emergency admissions.

Having some NHS experience under her belt, Laura took up a role in the private BMI hospital at Sandringham as Deputy Ward Manager, gaining valuable experience of the independent healthcare sector.

Laura rejoined the NHS at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Huntingdon, in 2003 and progressed there to the role of Ward Manager. Joining Bourn Hall in April 2011, she was promoted to the role of Lead Nurse at Cambridge in 2013 and to Regional Lead Nurse for our Cambridge and Norfolk clinics in 2017.

Laura is keen to ensure that the nursing teams across the region continue to provide the highest standards of care that they are well known for and to champion continuous improvements in working practices and procedures.

Laura says: “I feel I have really found my vocation working in the field of fertility and feel a strong sense of pride to be part of the wonderful team at Bourn Hall.”
