I joined the University of Salford in 1996 as a Senior Lecturer in Nursing following the transfer of Nurse Education from the NHS where I had been a Nurse educator since 1979. I have held many leadership posts in the School of Nursing, Midwifery & Social Work including Associate Head Teaching & Learning (1999-2003), Head of School (2003-2007), Director Life Long Learning (2008-2012) and I am currently Associate Head (Business and engagement). Since 2008 I have had responsibility for managing the NHS North West CPD/PQ contract on behalf of the College of Health and Social Care.  I currently represent the University on the following:

2007 – Appointed Governor Bolton NHS Foundation Trust

2008 – Member Greater Manchester Strategic CPD Network

2011 – 2012 NHS North West  CPD Electronic Monitoring Tool Senior User Group

2012 – Director of Health and Education Co-operative Ltd

My academic interests focus on leadership and management with particular interests in leadership development, strategic management and health care organisations.  I have a particular interest in work based learning and employer based education. I teach on the School’s post qualification undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes, and supervise postgraduate dissertation students.

In my role as Associate Head (Business & Engagement) I am interested in engaging with employers from public, private and 3rd sector organisations in supporting them develop their workforce. I am able to develop bespoke study days and short courses that meet the needs or an organisation or I am able to explore opportunities for accrediting employer delivered education.
