My name is Aisha Hamzah and I have worked as a paediatric children’s nurse at Birmingham Children’s Hospital for the past 13 years.
Last year I became the Ear Nose and Throat Nurse specialist for the Trust.
Until recently Anosmia was a term that I had never come across before. Working with Fifth Sense has highlighted the importance of smell and taste to children in a way that is different to adults – my focus is to look at it from a child and parents’ point of view.
I am currently working on setting up a smell clinic at Birmingham Childrens Hospital, which will be the first nurse led children’s ENT clinic in the West Midlands.
