I am a Principal Lecturer in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery and I am responsible for leading a group of skilled and experienced lecturers and senior lecturers. I am an active member of the Department Leadership Team.
I have been working in higher education for over 10 years and during this time I have developed teaching expertise in the areas of public health, health policy, sociology, and leadership and management theory. I am particularly interested in risk society and risk culture, inequalities in health, drug misuse and harm minimisation, and changing healthcare provision in the UK. My clinical background is in Accident and Emergency Nursing.
