Profile Summary

I have a clinical back ground in Trauma and Accident and Emergency care. Previous posts include that of Senior Sister in Accident and Emergency and Clinical Nurse manager for Accident and Emergency/Nurse Led Minor Injury Service and Theatres in North West National Health Service Hospitals.

Whilst working in practice I have played a part in developing patient focussed services, such as nurse led minor injury services and flexible operation day sugery services. My role as clinical nurse manager included staff develoment of an interdisciplinary team to deliver quality cooordinated services. This teaching and devlopment of others led me to my current role within the School of Nursing, Midwifery & Social Care at the University of Salford.

My interests lie in emergency care, leadership and management and clinical skills. I teach across all fields of practice, teaching both pre and post registration students. I am working to achieve my PhD, focusing on ‘physical assessment of the mental health patient in the acute mental health in- patient settings’.

I am a member of the EU RADAR (Recognition of the Acutely Deteriorating patient with Appropriate Response) project team. A 10 day intensive lifelong learning programme funded by the British Coucil for 70 students and 14 staff. Partenerships are between England, Spain, Germany, Finland, Cyprus, Slovakia and the USA.
