I bring a variety of real practical experience to my teaching having been a Senior Nurse and Practice Based Educator in Intensive Care for 20 years, as well as the initial Manager appointed to run the CCSI. As well as links to the CCSI, I also have an Honorary Contract with the CT Critical Care Unit at the University Hospital of South Manchester.
