Dr Jennie Ormerod
Consultant Clinical Psychologist
I joined the Cancer Psychological Service in February 2023, but I have worked in the NHS since 1997. I previously led a specialist traumatic stress service, then I worked for 6 years at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust before moving to HUTH. I use an integrated approach and multiple psychological models to fit the person I am working with. I really enjoy working with people to improve their quality of life. I am passionate about developing services and ensuring that our service works effectively to make a difference to those who need it.
Dr Hannah Marklew
Principal Clinical Psychologist
I have worked in Clinical Health Psychology since 2013, but I only joined the Cancer Psychological Service at the Oncology Health Centre in 2021. I use a variety of approaches to provide psychological therapy and support to those with a diagnosis of cancer and their family members. I work with the patient, allowing their specific needs and wishes to guide sessions. I feel very privileged to do the job that I do. Outside of work, I am happiest spending time with family and friends, and going for walks with my dog.
Counselling Psychologist in training
Prior to joining the amazing team at the Cancer Psychological Service in 2023, I have worked in a number of different areas of health Psychology. This has included offering psychological support related to cancer, substance misuse and living with HIV. I am passionate about integrating a number of evidence-based psychological models of wellbeing in a way that is accessible and engaging, in order to meet your individual needs. Aside from my work, I love expressing my creativity through music, art and cooking and also enjoy taking my dogs for long walks.

I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the BABCP and have a Post Graduate Diploma in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) from the University of Hull. I also have a Certificate in Education and teach on the Enhancing Therapeutic Communication course, presenting CBT First Aid as well as being involved in presenting the National Level Two training course to Senior Nurses within our Trust and surrounding areas. I have worked in our department for over twenty years and I was also previously a Registered General Nurse.

Senior Registered Nurse, Psycho-Oncology
I have worked in the Cancer Psychological Service since 2017. Before this I worked on the wards in the Queens Centre since 2011. I use a range of approaches to support patients and relatives with cancer-related concerns. I am passionate about using CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) as it's a collaborative form of therapy. I feel the techniques learned in this therapy can help us recognise and learn new ways to problem solve and cope. Then these can be used for the rest of your life. Outside of work I enjoy attending concerts, the theatre, cooking and gardening.

We also have trainee psychologists on placement.
The Cancer Psychological Service at the Oncology Health Centre has close links with the Clinical Psychology Doctorate Training Programme at the University of Hull, and so we routinely have Trainee Clinical Psychologists on placement with us. These Trainees will be in their final year of their training (soon to qualify), and so bring with them several years of experience working in the NHS.
Trainee Clinical Psychologists are an asset to our team, and they provide psychological and emotional support to patients and relatives, drawing on a range of approaches and varied experience. All of their work whilst on placement with us, is overseen by our qualified Clinical Psychologists. You may be offered an appointment to see a Trainee for your appointment, and it is your choice whether or not you would like to be seen by them.
