Director of Health


On qualifying as nurse, my clinical and management experience was in coronary care, acute medical care, and the rehabilitation and continuing care of older people. I have extensive experience in nurse education, including curriculum design, programme management, project management and research.

I am currently Director of Health in the School of Health and Society, providing senior leadership and management.

My specialist area of interest is working with and for older people, and this has been the focus of my teaching and research.
