I have a background in health visiting and left practice to teach on the health visitor course. After working as a programme leader for the post-registration community specialist practitioner programmes, I am now responsible for the Department of Nursing's post-registration provision. This role also involves managing the NHS funded credit bearing CPD and working with NHS partners to develop provision. I contribute to teaching on several NMC approved programmes including SCPHN and Return to Practice. I work as an NMC reviewer of several post-registration courses.
I have been involved in research with Sure Start programmes and public health skills. My research interests include physical activity and health, teaching with technology and education in practice. Current work includes building community capacity with health visitors and evaluating preceptorship.
