She also was the Project Worker for HIV and AIDS for the black Community Nottingham City NHS responsible for sexual health promotion within the premises and outreach into the Black communities. Since joining the contraception and sexual health outreach team Morvia has realised her greatest zeal, in combining both managerial and clinical skills within the role and in the set up and development of several new young people focused services. She has a particular interest in sexual health, and has established several nurse-led clinics for young people on “their turf” in the most deprived areas of the City of Nottingham. Morvia has been an employee of the NHS for over 30yrs and her passions are closely aligned with the underlying ethos and values of the NHS, particularly the importance of building trusting relationships with both patients and staff alike. During a recent interview with the BBC, Morvia was asked, ‘given the current cost improvements plans and austerity measures, would you give up your position as manager if it meant that patients were guaranteed increased quality of service provision?’ to which she replied , “yes, in a Heartbeat!”.
