Amanda Hodgson

Role: Head of Nursing for Medicine



Amanda qualified as an adult nurse in 1985 and worked on general paediatric wards at Barnsley Hospital. She came to Sheffield to undertake paediatric nursing training and subsequently returned to undertake a HDU course before returning to Barnsley Hospital.
Amanda moved from acute paediatric care into a community role, managing a team in Wakefield caring for children in the community with complex needs. She then moved to QNC in Nottingham to develop and set up their complex discharge team.

Amanda then left paediatric nursing to pursue an interest in sleep medicine at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds before moving to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to become an advanced nurse practitioner working with the GP Collaborative.

She returned to Sheffield Children’s Hospital in 2007, working in the community as Home Oxygen Specialist Nurse. She was appointed to the Matron role in 2008.

Her lines of responsibility are to provide guidance and leadership to all CNS’s that work within the Medical Division, oversee OPD, Ryegate Respite Unit and Helena Specialist Nursing Team. Amanda works closely with the medical division to look at initiatives that promote community care – the latest initiative is the set up and development of the OPAT Service.

Amanda studied at Leeds University and has PGDip in Advancing Nurse Practice and PGCert in management and leadership.
