Jackie was instrumental in the development of what has now become a national and international referral centre for paediatric Bone Marrow Transplant. This unit is now one of the largest within Europe receiving referrals not only from the rest of the UK but overseas as well, particularly in the field of alternative donor bone marrow transplant and whose published results for unrelated donor BMT in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia are unsurpassed. Jackie then became a Consultant at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children in Paediatric Bone Marrow Transplant.

She is now actively engaged at a local level in the strategy defining the overall health care delivery to Bristol and particularly a project to bring all inpatient children’s services to the Bristol Children’s Hospital site. The first of these moves has been the transfer of Acute General Paediatrics from the North Bristol Trust in April 2007, and the second transfer will be that of the remaining paediatric speciality surgical services to include neurosurgery, burns, plastics and scoliosis surgery which will transfer within a few years. Her team is are also actively engaged in bidding for all of the CAMHS and CCH Services for the Bristol and South Gloucestershire population.

This received EU recognition in 2006. Jackie was awarded an OBE in June 2003 for services to paediatric medicine. Jackie attempts to achieve a balance between clinical and managerial responsibilities in the modern NHS, and is completely committed to her clinical specialty and the care of children with leukaemia through Stem Cell Transplant throughout the South West and nationally. Jackie is a member of the Society of Merchant Venturers. In her spare time Jackie enjoys opera, ballet, tennis, classical music, Dutch and Italian Renaissance art, overseas travel, entertaining and the support of local and national charities.
