Hannah McCall BSc RN PDTN PGC

Lecturer in Adult Nursing


I am a registered adult nurse, with a passion for teaching and workforce development. I joined Sheffield Hallam University as a nursing lecturer in 2022.


I bring a wide range of nursing and teaching experience to my role at Hallam, including positions within the NHS, the UK civil service, private healthcare, and international non-governmental organisations; and I currently keep my clinical skills up-to-date by working as an event medic at sports and music events.
Within health and wellbeing, I have a specific interest in public health and outbreak control.




Department of Nursing and Midwifery

College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences

Subject area

I contribute to the delivery of our pre-registration nursing courses, in addition to CPD courses, specialist modules, and post-graduate programmes. I also undertake academic adviser responsibilities, supporting students to develop excellent study skills, and to relate classroom work to practical skills experiences during clinical placement.


Current research projects

I am committed to continuous service improvement through audit and research. I have had work published in the British Journal of General Practice, the British Medical Journal and the Nursing Standard, as well as presented posters at conference. My research has predominantly focused on the impact and use of digital technologies in public health, and infectious disease within sexual health.
