Biography

I have been a member of staff at the University of Sheffield since 1st April 1995 following with the integration of the Sheffield and North Trent College of Nursing and Midwifery. I have been involved in the delivery of nursing and healthcare education since 1992, having worked as a nurse in critical and acute care.

I am currently the Programme Lead for the BMed Sci Health and Human Sciences within the School and have overall responsibility for ensuring that the programme meets the needs of students and reflects the changing education requirements of those who wish to pursue a career in health care. I also teach undergraduate and postgraduate modules in management and leadership in healthcare across a range of our taught and on-line programmes.
