I trained as a registered Mental Health Nurse at Winwick Hospital (Warrington) from 1987-1990 and spent the majority of my clinical practice in the acute mental health setting, including HMP Risley.
After a brief spell of working commercially, most notably in the medical and pharmaceutical industry, I joined 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in 2004 to take up a lecturing post.
In 2009 I took a lectureship secondment at Liverpool John Moores University and worked as a senior lecturer and part time researcher on a European Interreg funded project called ‘Innovate Dementia’.
I joined the team at University of Salford in July 2016.
Currently in the post of interim Assistant Director and Programme Lead for the C16 pre-registration Nursing Curriculum.
Have a research interest in care planning, dementia and the physical wellbeing amongst people who use mental health services. I have presented both nationally and internationally and am currently interested in exploring resilience amongst pre-registration nursing students.
