I joined the School of Nursing and Midwifery in January 2014 from the Academic Unit of Supportive Care, where I worked on numerous palliative care and end of life studies. In 2007 I established an oral history service in the Sheffield Macmillan Unit for Palliative Care which runs with funding from Sheffield Hospitals Charity. The service works with people in the unit to create life history recordings as personal and family records and for research. From 2012 to 2015, I established five further oral history services in the north of England and Northern Ireland with Macmillan Cancer Support and spent a year on secondment with the charity developing oral history and exploring bereavement support. I also supervise a second oral history service in Sheffield, at St Luke’s Hospice. Alongside these projects I have carried out wide palliative and end of life care research, including impact of oral history in palliative settings.
