Amy Chrzanowski – Mental Health Nurse
My name is Amy and I am your mental health nurse. I work full-time and am based between The Old School and UWE Health Centre. I completed my training in 2012 at Swindon UWE and I have been working for the Bristol Specialist Drug and Alcohol Service ever since. I am really pleased to have the opportunity to be a part of this Project of integrating mental health nurses into Doctor’s surgeries and I am looking forward to being a part of your team. I think it’s a service that is very much needed. I grew up in Chippenham, Wiltshire and moved to Bristol four years ago for work. I enjoy walking, reading and going to gigs and festivals.
