Overview

Maggie spent nearly 20 years working in the health service, in A&E, general medicine and surgery, before moving across to nurse education. "I believe passionately in the value of role models to enhance and change nurse practice through education," she says.

"Today's NHS is going through a period of unprecedented change, and I enjoy the challenge of raising the standards of nursing towards an all-graduate profession," she adds.

Maggie is involved in lecturing and teaching on a number of the nursing courses run between Kingston University and St George's, University of London. "Nurses are learning new skills and taking on more responsibility. There are more nurse-led specialist services and nurses are playing an active and independent role in managing people's health and wellbeing in hospital and the community," she says.

With her mixture of hands-on experience and teaching background in the changing nurse arena, Maggie is well-placed to talk about a number of nursing issues, such as the delayed transfer of patients from either one medical unit to another, or from hospital to home; nurse-led discharge of patients from hospital, older people in hospital and their care, the role of community matrons and managing long-term health-care situations.
