I graduated with a degree in Nursing from Bristol Polytechnic in 1988 and staffed in London and Australia. I am dual qualified in Endocrine nursing and Oncology and hold a Certificate in Education. In 2009 I was appointed as Consultant Nurse & Clinical Lead for the Teenage & Young Adult Late Effects Service at Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
My principal focus has been the day-to-day provision and strategic development of survivorship and late effects services for childhood cancer, young adult cancer and bone marrow transplant survivors in the Sheffield, North Trent and wider regional services for children and young people.
In 2014, our Sheffield Survivorship and Late Effects services were recognised nationally in the prestigious Health Service Journal/Nursing Times Awards as Cancer Care Team of the year. In the same year I was also awarded Inspirational Leader of the year by the Yorkshire and Humber NHS Leadership Academy. More recently, I was commended for a Macmillan Excellence Award in Innovation.
In conjunction with my NHS roles, my Honorary Professor status with the Department of Oncology, I have striven to contribute to academic activity in the field of Cancer Survivorship and Late Effects. I have published around 40 medical & scientific articles, with around 25 original observations and 15 reviews, national guidelines and competence frameworks. I have organised a number of national and international conferences in Cancer Survivorship and Late Effects, both in Sheffield and elsewhere in Europe.
Nationally and internationally, I have delivered on key leadership roles in the areas of late effects. For example, for the European Group for BMT (EBMT) Complications and Quality of Life Working Party where I am Nurse Lead, for the Late Effects Special Interest Group of the Society for Endocrinology; for Macmillan Cancer Support where, I am a member of the Macmillan Consequences of Cancer Collaborative (CCAT), (http://www.macmillan.org.uk/Aboutus/Ouresearchandevaluation/Ourresearchpartners/CCaT.aspx.), and a board and expert panel member for the Late Effects Virtual Multi-disciplinary Team.
