About

Hilary was born in Shropshire in the West Midlands and is a senior lecturer, senior researcher and advanced nurse practitioner who has made significant contributions to the learning and motivation of students undertaking post graduate and doctoral programs within the University of Wolverhampton.

After working several years as an advanced practitioner (ANP) in women’s health she pursued a career in academia, ultimately becoming a researcher and author. Her career interest focuses on issues concerning the narrative understanding of general practice and how it happens. As an editor in chief of an online journal and member of two nursing journal editorial boards she has written extensively on issues relating to advanced practice nursing, primary care, law and research. Her book Practice Made Perfect: Higher Aspirations for Practice Nurses, Quay Books, embraces challenges specific to UK advanced nursing practice in six brief chapters. Previous teaching experience includes leading on Masters ANP programmes in primary care, and being instrumental in setting up the first Physicians Assistant programme in Britain.

Hilary is currently chair of the Black Country NHS Research Ethics Committee and alternative chair of the research ethics committee within the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing.  She has a keen interest in involving the public in research and was fundamental in setting up a service user group called RESULT (Research Enabling Service-users and the University to Learn Together) within the faculty. This group endeavours to promote the interests of the lay public in the involvement of research within the university and throughout the West Midlands
