Biography

I work in postgraduate medical education and am an Associate Dean and the Coaching Scheme Lead within Health Education England in Y&H.  I have worked in a variety of health systems in the NHS and overseas, and for and with acute trusts, health authorities, primary care groups, primary care trusts, a strategic health authority, clinical commissioning groups, Public Health England, NHS England and Health Education England.  I run the Future Leaders Programme in Y&H, a multidisciplinary clinical Leadership Fellowship Scheme.

I trained and worked in Public Health, and became interested in organisational development after observing the impact of successive NHS reorganisations on staff as well as patients. I set up and run a Coaching Scheme for trainees, having trained as a coach and seen at first-hand how powerful the impact of protected thinking time away from the coalface can be on workplace effectiveness, engagement and wellbeing, all of which contribute to better patient care.  I am a Senior Practitioner with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council.

From 2010 until 2019 I was Training Programme Director for Public Health in Y&H and still work closely with the School of Public Health in Y&H on education and development.

Interests

I am an experienced facilitator and trained in NHS Leadership Acadamy 360 appraisal,  Action Learning Set facilitation, Thinking Time Coaching and facilitation, Myers Briggs Type Indicator, Strength Deployment Inventory, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hogan psychometric tools.  I am interested in supporting healthcare colleagues to find reward and motivation at all stages of their careers.
