Biography

I joined the University of Salford in March 1996 as a Lecturer in Children & Young People’s Nursing.

My professional life has been entrenched in Nursing and I have a varied background having worked within intensive care, oncology and renal medicine, in children’s nursing, and remain the University Link Lecturer for the latter two clinical areas.

I am also a member of a national project on numeracy in health care: Standard Numeracy Assessment Project (SNAP). This group is a region wide, cross sector collaboration involving multiple professionals and major organisations that have designed a Standardised Numeracy Assessment resource which is to be used across several healthcare sectors.

Teaching

My academic interests focus on children and young people’s nursing, in particular children with long term conditions and disabilities. I contribute to both undergraduate and post graduate programmes where I have developed a wealth of experience in teaching Physiology, Pharmacology and Pathology.
