About the Teacher

Alys Bunce

I am a specialist travel health nurse with over a decade of experience of working in and managing private travel health clinics. My previous experience as a registered nurse was in an accident and emergency department in Manchester city centre. These days, I much prefer being on the side of prevention rather than cure!

 I love teaching and before I became a nurse, I was an A-level and access course lecturer in Psychology. I now teach a variety of clinical skills including travel health, immunisation, phlebotomy and basic life support. I have spoken at large travel health conferences and have enjoyed delivering training to many nurses, pharmacists, doctors and healthcare support workers over the years.

 I am also a keen traveller and mountain biker, and more recently, a mum to two young children who sometimes like to make a cheeky appearance on my Zoom courses. Look out for them if you are joining me on a remote session!
