Professional experience

My current role is a Senior Lecturer in Advanced Clinical Practice joining the team full time in 2016 working primarily in the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice MSc, in addition to lecturing on diabetes in undergraduate programs in the School of Nursing & Midwifery. I am particularly interested in qualitative research and the application of evidence based practice across the curriculum.

Prior to my move into Higher Education I have a background of medical nursing specialising in diabetes management across healthcare settings. I have experience of implementing service improvements trust wide and across the local, regional and national health economy in in-patient diabetes management. Development of advanced nursing practice across Diabetes and Cardiology specialist nursing.

I have worked for both the West Midlands Strategic Health Authority to support the Implementation of Think Glucose across West Midlands Acute Trusts, and nationally for the NHS Institute of Innovation and Improvement as a facilitator for Think Glucose implementation.
