As a dually qualified RGN and RMN with over 25 years of clinical experience, I have worked in number of clinical settings in the UK and abroad. I have experience in lecturing across various undergraduate and post-graduate courses, in a range of subject areas. My main teaching focus is around care of the acutely unwell adult and care of people with long-term conditions, particularly inherited neurological conditions, inherited dementias & enduring neuropsychiatric problems. Before joining Kingston and St George's Joint Faculty Health, Social Care and Education, I worked at City University London and was an honorary CNS (secondee) at Barts Health NHS Foundation Trust. As well as my substantive role as a senior lecturer, I currently work as an honorary CNS (0.1 WTE) at St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Department of Endocrinology).
