Queenie, as we call her, has worked with us since 2019 . She ensures the Medical Reports are sent out as soon as possible and makes your follow up appointment. She liaises with GP’s to make sure they have correct and up-to-date information about your medication. She also makes good tea!  We have a very close team at Healthcare4Kids and all have one goal for the day and that is to ensure we can help parents….


Cheryl has enjoyed over 15 years of Marketing and advertising account and project management within many industries. She is also a qualified beautician so when she’s not with us or being a Mum of two boys, she is pampering people.
