I was appointed as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine in 2011, after completing Emergency Medicine training and an additional year out of programme as an Acute Medicine Registrar in South Yorkshire. After appointment, I led the Clinical Decision Unit for five years and went on to lead Sheffield Teaching Hospitals’ Ambulatory Care Strategy (2014-2016).
Aside from my clinical role, I have previously been module lead for the Ambulatory Emergency Care Module for MSc in Advanced Emergency Care (2012-2015). I currently work at ScHARR on CLAHRC 2: Avoiding Admissions and Attendance in patients with long term conditions and Connecting Health Cities project.
